About Sustain: The Australian Food Network

Sustain’s mission is to catalyse meaningful and powerful connections to enable the emergence of a flourishing and healthy food system, realised through food systems events, research, network-building and consultancy servicesSustain’s two major projects are Cardinia Food Circles, principally supported by Cardinia Shire Council; and the Melbourne Food Hub, funded by an Innovation Grant awarded in December 2017 by the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.

Sustain was formed in 2015. It is based in Melbourne, Australia, and currently hosted by the William Angliss Institute. The organization emerged out of the Food Alliance., which itself was founded in 2009. It was under the Food Alliance that the Circles of Food methodology was developed, as were the terms of the Urban and Regional Food Declaration. These developments are now centre-pieces of Sustain’s work.
