Our vision is a world where everyone has the skills, knowledge, confidence and motivation to enjoy a healthy and sustainable diet – and better physical and mental health.

We are a registered charity, set up in 2006 as Health and Local Food for Families (HALFF) registered charity number 1121605, in response to the rising levels of ill health caused by a poor diet.

In 2017 we re-registered as a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) number 1173120, and in 2020 we changed our name to Project Food.


Our mission is to enable people in the South West to improve their diet, so they enjoy better physical and mental health. We aim to:

  • inspire school children and young people to understand the links between a sustainable diet and good health;
  • support people affected by diet-related conditions; and
  • help elderly and isolated people to develop skills they need for a healthier diet.
