Community food organizations and other interested food and agriculture interests are turning to the
development of food policy councils to coordinate
their efforts and influence public policy
to promote a just and sustainable food system.

 About the Training

This training session will provide stakeholders in Florida with information on food policy council organization, operation, membership, and purposes. The session will allow sufficient time and opportunity for participants to determine if and how a food policy council will advance their common agenda and what steps are needed to organize it. Participants are expected to include representatives from the private non-profit, private for-profit, and public sectors.

A collaborative program organized by Earth Learning, Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus Community Education and Earth Ethics Institute.
