The People of Oakland Food Policy Council
We are a council first, dedicated to the gathering of people – to problem solve, act, and celebrate. Food is our focus and policy is our tool. As a 21-seat volunteer council, we catalyze the collective power of diverse constituencies and across different sectors to create a healthy and resilient local and regional food system.
We carry out research, foster collaboration and engage in collective advocacy for our priority policy initiatives: economic security & development; local and sustainable food procurement; urban agriculture, and food access.
