Feedback is a UK- and Netherlands-based environmental campaign group working for food that is good for the planet and its people. To do this we challenge power, catalyse action and empower people to achieve positive change.
We have established a strong reputation as both an expert voice and practical actor on circular food systems and are regularly called upon by businesses, governments, and civil society to provide evidence and advice on diverse issues, including food waste, industrial (animal) agriculture, aquaculture, and circular food economies.
To move towards a food system that nourishes both people and our planet will require significant changes to our food culture, the food economy and its governance. We are seeking to bring about these changes through a unique combination of campaigning and advocacy, citizen engagement and pilot programmes
Anti-Oppression Statement: Feedback is an organisation actively seeking to move through an anti-racist and anti-oppressive journey in every aspect of its work. We acknowledge that the environmental sector is less open to people from under-represented backgrounds, and we are strongly committed to identifying and correcting where we may be perpetuating patriarchal, white supremacist values and other forms of oppression in our organisational culture, partnerships, and community work. We especially want to hear from you if you feel that you have lived experience of power structures preventing you from accessing opportunities like this.
A more sustainable food system
The food system is not delivering on today’s priorities: rather than producing healthy, secure, nutritious food for all while regenerating the natural world and mitigating global temperature rises, it is driving climate and ecological emergencies and exacerbating global injustice. To address these challenges and carry out our mission, we combine investigative research, campaigns, community outreach and on-the-ground pilot projects for a better food system.
Feedback has offices in London and the Netherlands. We have community projects in Sussex, Merseyside and Buckinghamshire as well as spreading the practice of Gleaning across the country

Green Futures is a Buckinghamshire based project that supports the local green economy, better addresses youth unemployment and reconnects young people to land and nature. Central to the project will be the creation of a ‘Green Futures Network’ of passionate and like minded schools, youth organisations and social enterprises/ charities/ businesses in the progressive food and farming sector.

The Gleaning Network is a network of groups, organisations, farmers, charities and keen volunteers who are all working to reduce farm-level food waste. The Gleaning Network exists to bring together and empower communities, enabling them to salvage surplus food left on farms; food which can then be redistributed within the local area.
