The Food Council is deeply committed to our primary priority of building equity in a food system that has, since its very beginning, established and reinforced structural racism and social injustice. Advocacy and initiatives to foster a robust, sustainable, and equitable local food system must start with dismantling racist systems in our society. We are dedicated to action that will create and strengthen pathways for those who have been marginalized by our food system, to direct the policies and programs that will rebuild this broken system. The Food Council prioritizes the expertise and leadership of people of color in facilitating systems change and building a team, Council, and Board that reflects the diverse population of Montgomery County’s communities.
We are committed to serving as an ally to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) colleagues, neighbors, organizational partners, residents, family and friends, and we stand in solidarity with those who denounce white supremacy culture. The Food Council is firmly committed to a policy against discrimination based on age, sex, race, religious creed, sexual orientation, disability or ethnic or national origin. We encourage feedback and open dialogue about how the Food Council can improve in our equity work.
