Kern Food Policy

Get Involved


The KFPC is a forum for individuals from many sectors of the community to share ideas, experiences, skills, and knowledge to alleviate hunger and develop a healthy, sustainable food system in Kern County. We invite you to join one of our current Working Groups:

(1) Access

What blocks residents from accessing healthy, affordable food? How does access to information, transportation, money, and geography contribute to food insecurity?

(2) Education

How do people gain the knowledge they need to make healthy, sustainable choices? How do we begin to understand our cultural norms around eating? What avenues exist—or need to be developed—for residents to learn?

(3) Advocacy

How do we develop an informed citizenry who will, in turn, hold policy-makers accountable to the health and well-being of all people?
