We are community members collaborating to develop a more sustainable food system.
The New London County Food Policy Council (NLCFPC) will transform the region's food system for improved health and economic outcomes through policy advocacy and program innovation, alignment, and support.
The NLCFPC will ensure that local, affordable, and nutritious food is accessible by all residents of the county.
The NLCFPC will reduce food insecurity, maintain and improve diet-related health, and support local, environmentally and socially responsible, agriculture in New London County.
The New London County Food Policy Council (NLCFPC) is a shared leadership initiative striving to ensure that local, affordable, and nutritious food will be available to all people throughout New London County. We recognize that every New London County resident should have access to an adequate supply of healthy, affordable, safe, and culturally-appropriate food. We will work to transform the food system by developing a local capacity to study and promote mission-critical policy in all of its dimensions: local, regional, state, national and international.
We are one of many Food Policy Councils founded across North America in recent years. To learn more about the Food Policy Council concept, click here.
