Just and Healthy Food System

Just and Healthy Food System

The Just & Healthy Food System Community of Interest (JHFS COI) is a broad, inclusive partnership of individuals, businesses, and community organizations focused on addressing issues of food justice, food sovereignty, and equity at the community level.

We believe that the current food system reinforces inequity and fails to support public health in an equitable way. Our goal is to create a just and healthy food system that works to undo institutional racism, increase equity, and promote strong communities and healthy people.
