Develop a local food purchasing policy.

A food economy encompasses all activities within the food system that generate revenue or economic benefit to residents of the county. One way we can strengthen our food economy is by increasing the demand and availability of locally produced food products through a local food purchasing policy.


SBCFAN Working Groups bring together individuals from across the food system to collaborate on projects that result in the activation of one or more Santa Barbara County Food Action Plan goals. Click on a Working Group below to learn more and/or request to join.
