Urban Eats

Globally, 150 million urban residents are food insecure, while cities generate 2.8 billion tons of organic waste each year.

We are calling on cities, private sector and investors to take urgent action to reduce and repurpose food waste around the world.

Urban Eats is a campaign launched by the Resilient Cities Network, which seeks to mobilize its network of nearly 100 cities to take action to improve food circularity and sustainable waste management. By looking at urban food security through a circular and resilience lens, cities can see the critical steps they should take to affect change. 

The campaign calls on donors and investors to support the network and its cities to develop and implement circular food solutions towards more resilient urban food systems. The campaign will drive partnerships and garner city commitments to eventually develop and implement a circular and resilient food program.

How cities can leverage opportunities to build resilient food systems trough circular pathways

Resilient Cities Network and Arup launched a new white paper in July 2022 Urban Eats: How Cities Leverage Opportunities to Build Resilient Food Systems through Circular Pathways. The report highlights vulnerabilities in our urban food systems, but also presents opportunities for cities to reduce food insecurity through resilient and circular economy approaches
