Notable Achievements

California FPC is an umbrella organization, so member FPCs are doing much of the work. The state FPC is enabling them to share resources and best practices, making them more efficient, and doing its own work on local food access. The Council's advocacy helped open farmers markets, make food available to those in need, and helped small businesses stay open during COVID-19.
