Kitsap Food and Farm Policy Council
We will not meet in April 2013.
Mission & Vision
Vision: A vibrant food system that supports healthy people, communities, economies and environment.
Mission: Partner with communities, businesses, agriculture and government to develop integrated and sustainable food policy and actions. The Council will advise on issues of food production, distribution and access in Kitsap County. In addition to formulating strategies to encourage local food production and farming, the group will help Kitsap residents understand and support locally grown products.
The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution on September 28, 2009 to establish a Food & Farm Policy Council comprised of 15 individuals appointed by the Board. The intent is to have balance in interests and geography (with a preference for youth involvement) in the areas of food production and farming, food distribution, and sustainability/buying locally, and marketing. The committee shall be empowered to advise on issues of a vibrant food system that supports healthy people, communities, economies and environment.
