Among many initiatives, Kath has helped to design and instigate: Sustainable Fish Cities, which has won pledges to serve 100% verifiably sustainable fish from caterers that together serve well over one billion meals a year; the Campaign for Better Hospital Food; and the Right to Food initiative, which aims to allocate accountable national and local responsibilities for a move ‘beyond the food bank’, to end hunger in the UK. Kath also helped to establish the Sustainable Food Cities network, and is a member of the London Food Board and Defra’s food procurement taskforce.
