Food Groups Give Report on Legislators

November 22, 2014 Roots of Change

Two food advocacy groups have released a report on how California legislators voted this year on 15 bills related to food and farming.

The report, released last week in Petaluma, was produced by Roots of Changes, a program of the nonprofit Public Health Institute, and the California Food Policy Council, a coalition of 25 local food policy councils around the state.

“We’re pleased to see local legislators had very strong voting records on the bills tracked,” Steve Schwartz, executive director of the Interfaith Sustainable Food Collaborative, said in a statement. The non-profit group works in Sonoma and Marin counties.
