Food Policy Council

Food Policy Council

The Johnson County Food Policy Council serves an advisory body to the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) and other decision makers in Johnson County that reviews and recommends policies to strengthen the local food economy and improve access to healthy and nutritious food.

The mission of the Johnson County Food Policy Council is to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals, the community and our environment through a just, equitable and sustainable food system in Johnson County. Through policy recommendations, education and collaborations, we strive to increase access to healthful food that is locally produced when available.

Johnson County Food Policy Council (JCFPC) will achieve its mission by:

  • Creating a forum for discussion and coordination for community-wide efforts to improve the nutritional, environmental, economic and social health of Johnson County.

  • Building the capacity of local food policy bodies to find common ground on policy priorities, generate public support for those policies, and educate residents and community leaders on issues in our food system.

  • Developing strategies to effectively address food access, hunger, obesity, community development, economic development, urban agriculture, food waste, nutrition and food education.

All Food Policy Council meetings are held the thrid Tuesday of every month from 11:30am - 1:30pm and alternate between the Olathe and MIssion JCDHE locations.
