The Spokane Food Policy Council works to get real, nutritious, planet-friendly food into the kitchens, hands and mouths of all residents. We create viable strategies to ensure people have reliable access to healthy foods in the future.
In September 2013, food economist Ken Meter from the Crossroads Center in Minneapolis visited Spokane and presented data and findings specific to the economic opportunity of our local foods.

Food Day inspires Americans to change their diets and our food policies. Every October 24, thousands of events all around the country bring Americans together to celebrate and enjoy real food and to push for improved food policies.
