Councils

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future’s Food Policy Networks (FPN) project maintains a comprehensive online directory of food policy councils across North America. This directory was founded on information gathered by the Community Food Security Coalition in May 2012. Since 2013, the FPN project has conducted regular survey of food policy councils to update information in the directory and learn about how FPCs are changing the food systems in their communities. For an overview of FPCs in the United States and Canada, see Keeping Track of Food Policy Councils: An Overview of FPC Census Results (2019).

We invite you to explore our online directory and map to see which FPCs exist in your area.

If you would like to add your food policy council to the directory or update your FPC’s information in the directory, contact Raychel Santo at rsanto1@jhu.edu.

Food Policy Councils at Work

We are frequently asked about what food policy councils have achieved as a result of their efforts. Drawing a cause and effect line with any collaboration is not easy. In 2016, we created the first Wheel of Achievements, pulling examples from the 2016 FPC census of how FPCs are contributing to an equitable, healthy, and sustainable food system.  For more recent examples, check out the FPC Wheel of Achievements from 2018 and 2019.
