The Spokane Food Policy Council is Spokane’s website dedicated to providing residents with a custom and interactive experience for learning about Spokane’s food system. Through the site, the Spokane Food Policy Council (SFPC) members hope to raise awareness and engage community members on how to help increase access to real, nutritious foods either on a personal, institutional, community and/or policy level.
The SFPC has been meeting monthly for the past three years and contributes to the health district’s food assessment process, educates members on Spokane County’s food system, increases awareness of local resources, and encourages increased access to local foods.
Purpose of Food Policy Councils (FPC’s):
- Influence government food policies
- Coordinate food system stakeholders within a specified geography/jurisdiction
- Conduct food assessments/studies and prepare food plans
