Local Food Day in Bruges

Belgium - 30/09/2016

The city of Bruges launched World Food Day 2016 during the Local Food Day organized by the Association of Cities and Municipalities on 30 September. This Local Food Day is the first major event for local governments on short-range farming, local food strategy and food smart cities.

Bruges is a signatory city of the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP), a pledge by mayors from over 120 cities to  more sustainable and equitable food systems in cities. FAO is supporting the implementation of the Pact and will host the second annual gathering of MUFPP mayors during the official celebration of WFD at FAO Headquarters on 14 October.
