About: Kansas City Food Policy Coalition

The Kansas City Food Policy Coalition advocates for a strong regional food system and promotes food policies that positively impact the nutritional, economic, social, and environmental health of Greater Kansas City.

Food System Graphic

Our primary goals are:

  1. To increase institutional purchasing of locally grown food, thereby encouraging greater production of fresh, nutritious local foods and enhancing economic vitality of our region.
  2. To increase the availability and accessibility of retailers offering healthy, safe and affordable food, especially in underserved communities.

The Greater Kansas City Food Policy Coalition is an alliance of individuals, government representatives, businesses, and organizations representing all critical components of our local food system, including healthcare, agriculture, education, social services, food distribution, government, private business, nonprofit agencies, and others.
