The mission of the Houston Food Policy Workgroup is to nurture the growth of a sustainable local food system, accessible to all, through education, collaboration, communication, and creation of a food policy council for the Houston region.



We have decided to cancel our upcoming meeting that was to be held on September 13. Many of us are dealing with the immediate aftermath of the recent hurricane and feel that we need to stay focused on these efforts at this time.

We hope that everyone is now safe and dry. Please continue to care for each other.
