Food Behind Bars is the UK’s only Registered Charity dedicated to transforming the food served in British prisons. It works with prisons on the subject of food – to improve the lives of those eating it and support the people making it. Its aim is to positively impact the health and wellbeing of prisoners, by delivering practical food-based education, promoting healthy eating and designing exciting food and drink initiatives.
Its projects and activities cover every aspect of food, cooking, eating and hospitality. Food Behind Bars works with prisons on a bespoke basis, co-designing original initiatives that enable prisons to champion wholesome, tasty and exciting food. Its work is shaped around each unique establishment and united by our philosophy of wholesome food for everyone in society.
