Our Aims, Vision and Values

Our Aims

IEL aims to increase healthy sustainable food grown, produced, sold and eaten trough transforming our local food system, by celebrating, supporting and strengthening community food activity and the connections between local people and local food.

Our Vision

IEL exists to re-localise the food system in Lambeth so that it nurtures us and strengthens our communities.

Our Values

IEL believes that everyone has a right to healthy affordable food. The current food system is unjust and unsustainable, so we need to create change. Food growing is a great way to create change – to ‘green the grey’ and build community – a positive approach is both enjoyable and more likely to be effective. Food is an important part of our economy and a product that can be re-localised relatively easily.
