The food system plays a central role in the health of our citizens. It dictates access, quality, affordability and the nutritional value of the food we consume. The state of our health is inextricably related to the quality of our food system.
We are pleased to invite you to the 2009 Healthy Food Policy Forum on Thursday, February 12, 2009, at The American Royal. This forum serves as the capstone to 24 months of work by the Healthy Food Policy Initiative, examining how we can improve the food system here in Kansas City. At this forum, you will hear from local and national speakers about policy and financing barriers to healthy foods. We will also unveil the strategic plan for the newly established Greater Kansas City Food Policy Coalition. Join us and learn about exciting developments happening locally and nationally for our food system.
