What is Food Policy?
Broadly defined, food policy is a set of collective decisions made by governments at all levels, businesses, and organizations 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 promote a healthy, equitable, and sustainable food system for all within Greater Cincinnati’s ten-county region.
