VISION: Equitable access to healthy food for individuals living in Tarrant County.
We are a coalition of citizens, organizations, government and business leaders concerned for the health of our community. We work to bring together all parts of the local food system to find solutions to current food issues at the local level.
We take a systems approach to making change in our community. That means we're looking at issues from how and where our food is produced, to where it can be accessed, to what happens to waste and everything in between.
It's a big job and change doesn't come quickly, but we're going to keep working until everyone has access to healthy food.
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.
By working with our organizational members and collaborating with other key community organizations, we've provided resources, convened stakeholders to advise on local ordinances and raised awareness of the need for systemic change to our local food system.
