Current Priorities

Upon Adoption of the Douglas County Food System Plan in summer 2017, the Food Policy Council established a new set of priorities that target several of the policy action items listed within the plan. (The Plan is organized by Goal --> Objective --> Policy Action Item.) The Council reassesses these priorities at each retreat. Learn more below and reach out to us if you're interested in engaging with us or have a question! 

Some current Council priorities include: 

  • Enabling agricultural economic development
  • Engaging priority voices in food systems work
  • Expanding food recovery throughout Douglas County
  • Reducing transportation barriers to accessing wholesome foods
  • Committing to elevating the impacts of racial injustice in the food system
