The Food Policy Council was founded by community leaders in social services, public health, and institutions of higher learning who found that despite ongoing efforts, access to healthy affordable foods was still limited for many Tarrant County citizens.
Leaders aimed to improve collaboration and take a systems approach to addressing food issues in our community. By working together, healthy, affordable, sustainable food can be accessible wherever people live, work, learn, and play.
To collaborate with representatives of all aspects of Tarrant County's food system to catalyze creative solutions for ensuring equitable access to sufficient, nutritious, and culturally appropriate foods, and to advocate for local food policies that support this goal.
VISION: Equitable access to healthy food for individuals living in Tarrant County.
