The Issues

Food can play a powerful role in promoting health, as well as building strong and diverse communities, protecting the environment and strengthening the economy. But there's a rising concern about the role that our current food system plays in a range of current problems – hunger, obesity, chronic disease, food safety scares, the viability of local farm communities, and more.

Food Can Play a Powerful Role

The Policy of Food

To address the issues, many communities coordinate a strategic approach to food in order to support a healthier and more sustainable food system by using research, facilitation, partnership building, and, most of all, by creating supportive policies and implementing specific, tangible projects.
