What is Food Policy?
Broadly defined, food policy is a set of collective decisions made by businesses, organizations and governments (at all levels) that affect how food gets from the farm to your table.
A food policy can be as broad as a federal regulation on food labeling or as local and specific as a zoning law that lets city dwellers raise honeybees. Decisions range from formal pieces of legislation to voluntary guidelines and administrative processes that allow for certain programs to flourish.
The mission of the Greater Cincinnati Regional Food Policy Council is to advance a healthy, equitable and sustainable food system for all within Greater Cincinnati’s ten-county region through policy, systems and environment change.
Full council meetings take place every other month. These meetings are open to the public.
We currently have four Impact Teams associated with the Food Policy Council:
