Community Food Enterprise Ltd

Our mission is to partner with the diverse people of Newham, the East London region, and nationally with those with similar needs, to safeguard and sustain their right to the right food as a fundamental condition for individual and community health and well-being. We will realise this mission by enhancing food access, by disseminating and promoting best practices in diet and nutrition, and by appropriate education, training and outreach.

At CFE, we are passionate about lowering or eliminating any barriers that might prejudice our ability equally to enjoy the right to the right food. Barriers exist of many kinds, among them poor diet, ignorance, disability, poverty and location. Any combination of these factors create the preconditions for what are sometimes called “food deserts”, those parts of both cities and the countryside where even those who want to eat the right food, and can afford to do so, still find it hard to find the right ingredients for their diet. So our work revolves around defining where the barriers to access occur, and systematically addressing them
