Over the last two decades, food policy councils have emerged around the United States as venues for shaping state and local policy to support sustainable food systems. The Pittsburgh Food Policy Council (PFPC) was formed in 2009 when a group of local stakeholders began convening to address community issues. The council aims to serve as a collaborative advisory organization, bringing together people from diverse food-related sectors to examine, develop and improve Pittsburgh’s food system.
The PFPC first developed a common vision statement and council charter, sharing a vision for “a food system that benefits the community, the economy and the environment in ways that are equitable and sustainable.” The council is committed to working with City officials and residents of Pittsburgh to develop food and urban agriculture policy. The Council also provides technical assistance, education, momentum and support on issues related to food production, food access, food distribution, health/nutrition and urban planning.
