Islington has been named as the capital’s top borough for good food for the second year running.

The Good Food for London 2012 report provides a league table of local authorities, ranking them based on support for key good food initiatives, including community food growing, quality school food and ethical food in council-run canteens.

Boroughs were rated in six categories and on what they have achieved through their participation – and Islington came out on top for the second time since the launch of the assessment last year.

Maps

Kath Dalmeny, a member of the London Food Board, said: “The Good Food for London maps paint an inspiring picture of progress by many London boroughs to support good food.

“The maps also challenge those boroughs that are lagging behind to follow the good example set by Islington and others, and take more action to make it easier for their residents and visitors to eat healthier and more sustainable food.

“If all London boroughs took the simple, affordable and effective action outlined in this report, it would significantly improve the health of Londoners, the livelihoods of the farmers and other food providers, and the sustainability of the food system on which we all depend.”
