Action Groups

Each year, the Houston Food Policy Workgroup develops a set of Action Groups based on our strategic aims and goals. These Action Groups meet throughout the year to further progress on their specific agendas. Our overarching aims are to support and promote local foods, support and promote local food distribution, and to increase access to healthy foods. Below find our Action Groups for 2016 as well as our past initiatives.
