A Horizon Europe Funded Project

FEAST aims to see every person in Europe eating a healthier and more sustainable diet. The consortium aims to achieve this goal by advancing the state of the art in research and innovation by bringing together different disciplines across the food system to co-create novel, practical and scalable community-based, technology-based and policy-based solutions.

FEAST is a large consortium of 35 partners, where nearly 200 people are involved directly or indirectly to share best practices, resolve chal­lenges, and embrace success in the European food system.

Here at UCC, PI Janas Harrington and her team are working on FEAST Work Package 3 mapping and monitoring commercial and policy impact on the food environment here in Ireland.

FEAST operates 12 Living Labs (LL) in 11 European countries, collabora­ting closely with local stakeholders such as schools, kindergartens, se­nior residencies, and municipalities. The efforts of LLs enhance local food settings, spanning 3 million individuals through municipalities and an added 14 million individuals through associated large city living labs.

Cork City is playing an important role in the project. We are currently mapping food policy stakeholders in Cork, in consultation with local government health representatives. The stakeholders will then help us to map food-related policies in the city. Our stakeholder and policy maps will form a template that other research and community groups can adapt and apply in their cities.
