Oakland Food Policy Council

Oakland Food Policy Council (OFPC) has been a lead in successful policy initiatives in Oakland. They have worked with local organizations, such as City Slicker Farms, and successfully passed policies that remove barriers for a local, equitable, and sustainable food system. Their work has been local, regional, statewide, and national. Oakland Food Policy Council focusses primarily in areas of urban agriculture, economic security and development, procurement, and food access. For example, in 2014 the OFPC achieved a landmark victory in its local "Right to Grow" Campaign, resulting in the City of Oakland adopting OFPC community-based land use policy recommendations to ensure that the growing and selling of food is a basic human right throughout the city.
