SLCgreen - Food Policy Task Force

The Food Policy Task Force (FPTF) was convened by Mayor Ralph Becker in October 2009 to recommend and promote sustainable food policy.

The FPTF is comprised of a diverse group of individuals and organizations interested in improving food policy in Salt Lake City. They are working to identify policy and program opportunities which will improve access to more fresh and nutritious food for all Salt Lake residents.

The Task Force is also working to identify opportunities to expand urban farming, preserve open space and to empower residents to live more sustainably.

To help understand more about food production within Salt Lake City and its regional food shed, the City has developed the Community Food Assessment.
