Changing the National Food Policy Dialogue via “Food Policy Action!”

If you haven’t already, check out Food Policy Action, a 501c4 organization which dedicates its energy to promoting a sustainable food system through advocacy and education, and the publication of the National Food Policy Scorecard.  The scorecard keeps our legislators accountable since it rates them (in a positive or negative direction) on voting for or against food policy sustainability and equitability issues. 

Specifically, they state one of their main goals as;

“to change the national dialogue on food policy by educating the public on how elected officials are voting on these issues.”

Their website has a map which you can click on to see how our legislators voted on the various food policy issues.  This allows for transparency and the ability to influence food policy change.
