The Berkeley Food Policy Council (BFPC) is a coalition of local organizers, activists, visionaries, and entrepreneurs who work towards promoting regional agriculture and community access to healthy food. The BFPC was established in 1999 and meets on a quarterly basis.
The BFPC model is an informal association of community-based organizations, businesses, and representatives from Berkeley educational and governmental agencies. Although the geographic scope of the BFPC is limited to the city of Berkeley, its influence, membership, and activities are not strictly limited by city boundaries.
The Berkeley Food Policy Council wants to help families find better ways of growing, accessing, and buying food that will improve their health.
