CULTIVATE is an EU-funded project aiming to increase awareness and knowledge of foodsharing initiatives (FSIs), understand what drives or hampers their practice, and foster sustainability, inclusion, and resilience in urban and peri-urban food systems through food sharing. Many FSIs already provide a positive contribution towards a transition towards sustainable food systems yet their activities are often hampered by complex, fragmented food governance, uncertain finance and insecure tenure.


Vision: More just and sustainable urban and peri-urban food systems


Goal: CULTIVATE aims to develop the Food Sharing Compass, a social innovation support platform for FSIs, policy makers, food supply actors, researchers, and citizens. With its five tools, the Compass will help these stakeholders navigate food sharing landscapes and cultures to understand, develop, replicate, scale out and strengthen food sharing and create more sustainable, resilient, and healthy urban and peri-urban food systems. CULTIVATE supports the EU’s inclusive climate mitigation and adaptation ambitions.
