Los Angeles Food Policy Council wrote -
The Los Angeles Food Policy Council is a non-profit devoted to the health, sustainability and fairness of food in our region. We believe all communities deserve access to good food, grown in a way that respects people and the planet.
Our mission is to promote civic engagement and policy solutions that address hunger, health disparities, environmental sustainability and working conditions within our local food system.
Working together with stakeholders in government, business and the non-profit community, we have successfully implemented policies to improve:
- school food
- senior meals
- urban farms and community gardens
- fighting ‘food desert’ conditions and food insecurity facing many low-income Angelenos
Support for the Los Angeles Food Policy Council goes a long way to build the Good Food movement. We connect and catalyze hundreds of individuals and organizations across the region through dynamic working groups, engaging public events and our innovative, community-driven research and policy approach.
By addressing the food system as a whole, your support promotes sustainable, fair food in a fundamental way. Help make LA a Good Food region – where food is healthy, affordable, sustainable and fair for ALL.
