The Florida Food Policy Council was recently featured in an October article published on Food Tank's website.
In the article titled "Florida's Food Policy Council: Building a Platform to Drive Change," writer Lana Chehabeddine touches on our mission, current projects, and goals going forward.
Chair, Rachel Shapiro explains about the FLFPC in the interview, “We provide a statewide network and platform on which food system stakeholders can communicate and collaborate…and we are building a database of food-related laws throughout the state…in order to provide a sound foundation for any recommendations.”
Indeed, we are evolving and growing. “The approach we have taken as a group is to taste the flavor of the land and form relationships and connections before getting started on any initiatives…This facilitates the next steps of policy research and change,” continued Rachel.
As we move into the next phase we are excited for what lies ahead and are excited to continue to educate Floridians to become food citizens.
