Food Policy Council

Responsive Page

The Lynn Food Policy Council works to ensure that Lynn's residents can eat well without worrying about being able to afford nutritious food for themselves and their families. In Lynn, food is celebrated, affordable, culturally reflective of the city's diversity, nutritious, easily accessible, and supports broader goals of health and economic opportunity.

A strong network of city and community partners strategizes to address the root causes of food insecurity and inequitable food access. They build relationships, advance policies, deliver programs, and leverage resources to cultivate a vibrant, resilient, and just food system.
