The Montgomery County Food Council is an active participant in urban and rural policy and process change. Our advocacy efforts lead the way to a more healthful and sustainable community by bringing together a diversity of nonprofit and community based organizations, businesses, government agencies, and residents in a coordinated effort to address the broad range of food system-related issues in our region.
Our policy initiatives are led by our Policy Committee, which considers issues and facilitates the decision-making and establishment of policy positions on behalf of the Food Council. This standing committee is entrusted to make decisions that will represent the mission and vision of the Montgomery County Food Council on public policy issues that influence the Montgomery County food system.
