Foodprint Melbourne is a research project that investigates the importance of Melbourne’s city fringe foodbowl for the city's food supply and explores ways of strengthening food production on the city fringe so that Melbourne's foodbowl contributes to a more resilient and sustainable food future for the city.

Foodprint Melbourne is run by an inter-faculty team at the University of Melbourne. The project is funded by the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.

Project partners include the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, the City of Melbourne, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Wyndham City, Cardinia Shire Council, City of Whittlesea, the Interface Councils, the Peri Urban Group of Rural Councils, the Port Phillip and Westernport CMA and LeadWest.
