Detroit Food Policy Council

For many well-designed food systems, the work started with a food policy council. Many of those had the help of longtime food policy council activist Mark Winne of Community Food Policy Council (CFSC). Winne was one of the early architects and supporter of dozens and dozens of food policy councils and even though there are many other food organizers assisting communities now, he still travels constantly throughout North America. Last May, CFSC hosted a very informative food policy conference which put many of those organizers and teams center stage to share their ideas. When people take the time to figure out their policy barriers to healthy food communities and create a democratic process to work in, they find themselves light years ahead when the sticky collaboration times come.
The Detroit council has excellent information on their site and many documents to use to research your own food policy work.
