This committee shall gather and address problems found within food production, consumption, processing, distribution, and waste disposal with the primary focus on finding solutions to problems that promote sustainability, economic development, and social justice in the food system of the Columbia and surrounding areas by educating government officials about issues of the food system, making policy recommendations, research, fostering of cooperation among private, public, and non-profit interests.
The Food Equity Subcommittee was formed in order to ensure the voices of Columbia residents living in low food access areas and those most impacted by inequities in the food system were the key drivers in the policy recommendations developed by the Columbia Food Policy Committee. This subcommittee has put together a robust report containing policy recommendations that were officially adopted by City Council in December 2019. To view the entire report, click here.
