The network summit was a new phase in our work to ensure a healthy and prosperous food and farm economy in California. ROC has taken a huge step forward by introducing the results of the Strategic Mapping Project and launching a history-making policy campaign. The “California Healthy Food & Agriculture” Platform sought to inspire legislators to craft future-focused state policies that ensures a healthy and prosperous food and farm economy in California. The summit featured debates about the planks of the platform.
