Food Policy Councils Work Group


The goal of the Food Policy Council Work Group is to connect scientists and practitioners who are engaged in food system research and evaluation in order to foster collaboration, information sharing, and relationship building. Food systems span disciplines, and thus a multi-disciplinary approach to better understand, evaluate, and positively influence food systems to promote equity, inclusion, and support obesity prevention measures is warranted. The Working Group emphasizes Food Policy Councils as a mechanism for facilitating food system change, and provides opportunities to work on emerging group priorities such as identifying food system indicators that can be used by researchers and practitioners alike to measure food system change. The Food Policy Work Group also emphasizes the use of community-engaged, policy-driven, and systems science approaches to research and evaluation.
