mission and vision



The Los Angeles Food Policy Council (LAFPC) works to ensure food is healthy, affordable, fair and sustainable for all.


We believe Good Food for All is possible and that all communities deserve access to good food, grown in a way that respects people and the planet. We work to create a local food system free from hunger, rooted in equity and access, supportive of farmers and food workers, and guided by principles of environmental stewardship and regeneration. To accomplish our vision of Good Food for All, we catalyze, coordinate and connect people across the LA region, including government, business and community groups working on food.



The Los Angeles Food Policy Council serves as backbone organization for a network of over 400 organizations and agencies working for healthy, sustainable and fair food. Growing from the collective impact model, we are making transformative change in three primary ways:


We cultivate a diverse network of change makers from across our food system, from farm to fork and beyond, through cross-sector working groups, network events and other civic engagement activities.


We provide strategic guidance to our stakeholder network through facilitation, research, policy development and training.


We translate collaboration into policy outcomes, and help incubate, launch and lead food system initiatives.
