Assemblymen Roger Dickinson presents resolution to the Sacramento Food System Collaborative
February 15, 2013 — The Sacramento Region Food System Collaborative (FSC) held a regional Food Summit, State of the Regional Food System: Local Innovations. The SFSC sought to:
- Bring together community stakeholders on a shared vision for agriculture and food.
- Share a pathway for a sustainable food system through the Sacramento Region Food System Charter.
- Recognize the unique innovations emerging in the region.
The summit brought together community stakeholders to present the FSC’s charter, a set of guiding principles to create an equitable, sustainable and healthy food system for the region. Sacramento’s recent work illustrates the potential to unite a diverse coalition of stakeholders working on a board range of issues ranging from increasing access to healthy food in underserved communities to supporting the economic and environmental viability of agriculture in the region.
Assemblyman Roger Dickinson presented the FSC steering committee with a resolution commending them for their efforts and for the development of the Food Charter, which is being adopted by cities, counties, and school districts around the region.
