This research provides analysis of food activism in Saint-Petersburg. It tries to reveal, what type of food activism – social or environmental – is present there and who has influence on that with the help of semi-structured interviews that are conducted with food activists. It finds that, firstly, there are three, but not two types of food activism, and, secondly, environmental type still prevails. It can be explained by environmental concerns that are attributable to food activists’ community. Meanwhile, whilst the state motivates activists to engage and keep engaging, it does not influence the type of food activism people choose.
