Healthy & Sustainable Food Action Plan
The Sonoma County Healthy & Sustainable Food Action Plan (FAP) acts as a guiding "North Star" for local food system change. It provides a shared community vision and goals by incorporating the findings from the Community Food Assessment and Sonoma County Food Forum Report.
The FAP groups opportunities and concerns into 4 action areas (pillars): Agriculture & Natural Resources, Economic Vitality, Healthy Eating, and Social Equity.
Within each Pillar, broad goals are articulated and details of policies and recommendations are enumerated into sub-goals. In total, the Plan includes 11 broad food system goals, 42 sub-goals, and was designed to move across the levels of the food system.
ENDORSING THE FOOD ACTION PLAN
The FAP invites governments, businesses, community organizations and individuals into dialogue and to join with others to improve our food system.
Your endorsement will help build momentum to advance the Food Action Plan, support you in linking up with others working in similar areas, and help the Alliance identify what efforts are underway and where the gaps are. By endorsing the plan, you join with others to declare support for the vision and our commitment to food system change in Sonoma County.
We encourage your endorsement of the FAP as a comprehensive plan. Should you/your organization not be prepared to sign-on to the entire FAP, supporters have the option to endorse 1+ Pillar or 1+ Goals.

FMNF offers a full cycle, seed-to-table program incorporating composting, soils composition, seed and plant identification, planting, cultivation and harvesting, and garden-to-table nutrition education. We celebrate each harvest through meal preparation lessons that incorporate the produce the children have raised. Most importantly, we send weekly boxes of produce to the children's foster and group homes, to other institutional settings where program participants live and learn, and to the private homes where fewer than 5% of the children in our programs live with parents/guardians.
