Food Policy Networks

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future's Food Policy Networks (FPN) project supports the development of state and local food policy through networking, capacity building, research, and technical assistance. Launched in 2013, FPN conducts a census of food policy councils (FPC) every 18 months, facilitates communities of learning and practice, offers curbside consulting, hosts thematic discussions, and develops resources to aid FPCs in their work. FPN partners with various organizations across the U.S. to achieve our vision of creating an equitable, healthy, sustainable, and just food system through civic engagement, advocacy and public policy
