Food Policy Council

Food Policy Council

A Food Policy Council is a group of community members who come together to improve their local food system* through actions such as education, policy and connection. Anyone can take part in the Council and no prior knowledge required, just an interest in Quaboag Valley’s local food system!

*A food system is the collaboration of all steps involved in food creation including, production, processing, distribution, consumption, and waste management.

Community Food System

A community food system is a food system in which local farmers, community members, and consumers work together to form a more resilient and sustainable local food economy. Examples: Small local farmers, community gardens, food pantries, farmers’ markets, etc.
