Food System Action Plan (2021)
The 2021 Sacramento Region Food System Action Plan (Regional Action Plan) identifies prevailing challenges, opportunities, best practices, priorities, and recommendations to advance the region’s food system for the communities of El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo Counties. The goal of the Regional Action Plan is to increase the vitality of the region’s food system and to identify financing strategies and mechanisms to support a more health-promoting, resilient, equitable, prosperous, and accessible food system for all residents of the Greater Sacramento region.
The Regional Action Plan builds on the seminal Food System Action Plan published in 2015, which laid early groundwork for investments, facilities, partnerships, and capacity building. While many important accomplishments have occurred as a result of these efforts, hardships caused by the pandemic, wildfires, drought, and more require a current response to new demands.
Accordingly, the Sacramento Region Community Foundation (Foundation) enlisted Valley Vision to develop the 2021 Regional Action Plan. The Regional Action Plan provides a common framework for the investment strategies, leadership, and mechanisms needed to transform our food system into one that provides more equitable, accessible, and healthy food sources; strengthens the overall food system; and elevates opportunities for residents living in the Greater Sacramento region.
