Massachusetts Local Food Policy CouncilsThere are more than 20 local food policy councils throughout the state, creating critical momentum for change at the local level. The MA Food System Collaborative is supporting these groups through creating a statewide network of food policy councils. This network provides a venue to strengthen connections between the groups, share best practices, and provide relevant education.

This list includes bills that most closely align with goals and recommendations from the Plan, with short summaries, links to the full bill text, and links to the actions or recommendations from the Plan that are most closely related to the legislation.
