Mission, Vision and Values

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.
