ROC Changemakers DaySince its inception, Roots of Change has been governed by a team of strategic advisors, first as the ROC Council, and later as the Stewardship Council. The Stewardship Council represents ROC’s past and present strategic advisors who were composed of members selected from various sectors and reflected the diversity of the population and food system in California. In September 2014, ROC transitioned its Stewardship Council to align with its work with the California Food Policy Council and its representatives, to focus efforts on policy making in the food system.
