REGIONAL FOOD ACCESS PROJECT
Check out the Sacramento Region Food System Collaborative (FSC) website! Our website povides you with the latest news, events, and resources related to the FSC, our local food system, and access to healthy foods for all people throughout the region.
The Food System Collaborative (FSC) will support the integration of a regional food policy that prioritizes the elimination of health disparities and ensures sustainable food access to low income communities in regional and state planning efforts that have the potential to impact the regional food system. Examples of such efforts include RUCS and the Blueprint. By building strength through inclusiveness, and by virtue of access to local, regional, state, and federal policy makers, the FSC will improve access to healthy, culturally-appropriate food for all residents, support the viability of producers, and contribute to healthy community design outcomes that improve social and physical environments. The methodology and approach will be replicable to benefit other areas of California in similar need.

The second meeting of The Food System Collaborative, hosted on July 23, 2009, included an engaging presentation by Mark Winne, author of Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty and continued discussion of the direction of the Collaborative. We are encouraged by the diverse representation, interest and commitment to improving our regional food system.
