Food Policy Opportunities for Nebraska: Growing Healthy Food Systems

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

Food policy can be hard to navigate. It's even harder to build better policy and make change. That’s where food policy councils, and this event, come in.

Food policy councils bring people together from across the food system. Farming, processing, wholesale, retail, restaurants, public health, anti-hunger, government - you name it! Council members develop policy recommendations and interact with local government to help make those changes happen. Councils operate in almost every state.

"Growing Helathy Food Systems for Nebraska" will include a keynote presentation from Mark Winne, nationally renowned food policy council expert, and a panel discussion with food system stakeholders.

Please join us as we address these questions and more:

  • What are our challenges and opportunities to create a food system that works better for everyone?
  • How do food policy councils function in other states and local areas?
  • What is the right approach for Nebraska?

Our food system affects all of us. Your answers to these questions will inform work that is to come.
