FPAC members establish programmatic subcommittees in order to research, study, evaluate, and make recommendations on priority issues. The subcommittees drive the Council’s work forward through regular meetings and collaboration. The current programmatic subcommittees are Anti-Hunger, Food & HealthGood Food Procurement, Urban Agriculture, Workforce & Economic Development and Zero Waste.

FPAC also operates two standing subcommittees to ensure Council processes run smoothly, Governance & Membership and Communications & Outreach.

The Philadelphia Food Policy Advisory Council encourages any resident interested in addressing issues in the food system to get involved by coming to a subcommittee meeting. All of our meetings are open to the public, and we welcome all newcomers!
