Food Policy & Governance
The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future engages in research, policy analysis and technical assistance to advance food system change in local, tribal, institutional, state, federal and international policy. We build the capacity of partner organizations and food policy councils to advocate for a healthy, equitable, resilient and sustainable food system.
Our Food System Resilience Project aims to use research, policy and education to make sure that food systems can provide safe, nutritious, accessible food despite climate change and other threats.
The FPN project aims to build the capacity of local, state, regional, and tribal food systems councils, national organizations, and other groups interested in improving the food system.
