FPAC Releases 2018 Policy Platform

Since the release of FPAC’s last policy platform in 2014, A Philadelphia Food Policy Roadmapthe City has made great progress: Mayor Kenney established the Zero Waste and Litter Cabinet to help the City reach zero waste by 2035, City Council passed legislation promoting equitable water access in schools, and the Administration pledged to uphold healthy nutrition standards by passing a sugar-sweetened beverage tax. These policies demonstrate that Philadelphia is a leader in food policy and is moving towards a stronger, healthier, and more just food system.

The newly released 2018 policy platform will help in continuing the city’s trajectory and FPAC is committed to supporting the Mayor, Administration, and City Council to move these policy recommendations forward. The recommendations provided in the platform have been drafted, vetted, and finalized by the collective expertise of FPAC’s members and public subcommittees.
