Local and state food policy councils (FPCs) have the potential to benefit from, and even influence, food system policies and regulations at the federal level. Join us for this webinar and hear about how FPCs can seek federal resources for their communities, and bring local issues to the attention of Congress and federal agencies, such as by submitting a comment on proposed legislation or contacting officials. A representative from the USDA will also describe the various opportunities through which FPCs can engage with the USDA on the implementation of programs that impact local communities.
