Topic: Finding Food in Your City Government

Thursday, June 7 (Noon-1:15 pm EST)

 

Everyone is talking about food these days! Over the past ten years, staff at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) have witnessed a surge in food-related activities in communities around the country, including the formation of food policy councils, expansion of healthy food purchase incentives, and growth of urban agriculture initiatives. While non-profit and community organizations are driving much of this work, city governments are also playing a leading role in developing and strengthening policy to support food systems.

Tune into this webinar to hear food policy council organizers from Milwaukee and Columbus discuss their accomplishments and relationships with city government. CLF and GovEx staff will also discuss how to use data and tools to understand your jurisdiction’s food system. Join us for this rescheduled conversation on June 7 at noon Eastern time, and start food planning in your city.

The Healthy Food Policy Project is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, June 13, 1-2pm Eastern Time, about its online policy database, which can help communities identify local laws that can improve access to healthy food across the food system.

 

 

Towns, cities and counties are using law and policy to support healthy eating in many ways. These laws can focus on socially disadvantaged groups, and approach health holistically to include environmental and economic goals. The webinar will shed light on how the database was developed, the range of policies it includes, and presenters will demonstrate how it can be used to support healthy eating policy work across a wide array of communities.
