CFJC is engaged in a number of exciting new initiatives and on-going campaigns, including:
♦ Working with the national Healthy Farms Healthy People Coalition, and GOAT Process to champion progressive federal legislation such as the 2012 Farm Bill that reflects the needs of our local communities
♦ Researching and analyzing current and upcoming food policies with our national partners
♦ Actively participating as members of Bay Area food justice and climate change alliances and councils
♦ Co-hosting Farm Bill workshops around the state to engage communities
♦ Hosting Kitchen Table Talks, which provide a space for community residents to discuss their concerns related to food access, affordability, quality, and nutrition as well as to build solutions collectively
♦ Training and supporting Mothers Taking Action in solving issues of food-related illness and access to healthy, affordable foods in their own communities
♦ Hosting state-wide, public food policy calls
Local Food Alliances and Policy Councils
CFJC believes that change starts at the local level. To address local food access issues and to strengthen community ties, we collaborate with a variety of Bay Area food justice and climate action coalitions, and attend local events and conferences that further our mission.
We hope to expand our involvement with other local organizations and alliances as part of building a grassroots movement for systemic change.
