When people can’t provide healthy food for themselves and their families it affects their health, their education, and their ability to contribute. It affects all of us, and it holds back our nation’s potential.
You can be part of the movement that ensures everyone in America has the food they need to thrive.
Get educated about why people are hungry in America. Decide to make active participation in our democracy a priority in your life. Spread the word.
Food Policy Councils work at the community level to propose innovative solutions to improve local or state food systems. This can fuel local economic development and help make food more affordable and accessible.
Local and state governments are testing grounds for innovative policy ideas that can be adopted nationally. Food Policy Councils are a way for you as an individual to have real influence!
The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future’s Food Policy Networks project is a great place to start. They make it easy to find an Food Policy Council in your region and if there isn't one, they give you the tools to start one.
The Town Hall Project makes it easy, empowering constituents across the country to have face-to-face conversations with their elected representatives. They research every district and state for public events with members of Congress and inform you about events in your district and state. Join up with the Town Hall Project at townhallproject.org
