More info located at the end of this doc: https://discovery.osu.edu/assets/images/FocusArea/FoodSecurity/L_and_L_Grants_MAY262016.pdf As a network, we are focused mostly on capacity building of local councils. At the state-level, we have included state food policy goals in the Ohio Department of Health's Chronic Disease Prevention Plan, making food policy, and local food policy councils, an agenda item for the state of Ohio. We were an active part of the task force that passed funding for an Ohio Healthy Food Financing Fund.
