The SC Food Policy Council recently developed new committees that are focused on different substantive topics of interest within the food system. The goal of having committees is to collectively develop a robust state-level food equity policy platform.
The committee seeks to improve the coordination among organizations working to advance healthy food access within health care settings as well as to both identify and facilitate the adoption of state-level FiM policy and system changes.
Amy Weaver, Committee Lead
Rural and Urban Local Food
This committee is separated into alternating meetings for a total of 8 meetings a year and two in-person meetings. Participants will discuss and prioritize the gaps, challenges and opportunities in the SC local food system (farm & garden to table) relating to Rural and Urban Communities. The rural committee also provides a clarify the role that the Rural Resource Coalition of SC plays in bridging the gaps and decreasing the impact of the challenges.
