Working together to fight food poverty in Bristol

Our aims

We exist  to help our partner organisations fight poverty across the city of Bristol more effectively. By working together we can develop a cost-effective and co-ordinated approach to supporting people in need.


Project Partners

We work with projects right across Bristol that provide a range of services, from emergency food parcels, to help with energy costs, and diverting surplus from the food industry to projects that need it.

Quotes from Associates

“We’re very impressed by the work being done by all these charities and the fact that they’re banding together under the 5K Partnership, and the City Council is keen to support that work.”

Dr Angela E Raffle
Consultant in Public Health
Bristol City Council

“Food poverty is the inability to afford food or to have access to enough food to make up a healthy diet. It is about the quality of food as well as quantity. It is not just about hunger, but also about being appropriately nourished to attain and maintain health.”

“The 5K Partnership is such an important initiative, and really does deserve the support of the people of Bristol.”
