Endorse the Food Action Plan!

The Food Action Plan (FAP) is a collaborative effort between the Sonoma County Food System Alliance, the Sonoma County Department of Health Services, and a network of diverse community stakeholders.

Building upon existing work, the FAP provides a shared community vision and goals for our local food system. The Plan incorporates the findings from the Sonoma County Community Food Assessment and Food Forum Report and invites local governments, businesses, community organizations and individuals to commit to action and play an active role in improving our food system.

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.

As a road map, the Plan serves as a framework to guide collaboration and integrate the efforts of diverse food system stakeholders. As a guide, it serves to catalyze policy change, encourage investment, and raise awareness and support from our community and policymakers. While the FAP intends to be a comprehensive guide, it also serves as a living document – a guiding north star – and aims to respect the voices of all industries across the spectrum of the food system.
