The Richmond Food Policy Council was started in collaboration with the Office of the Mayor, Amahra Hicks and Urban Tilth. Today the Richmond Food Policy Council has over 30 members from a wide variety of community organizations, government agencies and individual community members.

Currently the Richmond Food Policy Council is co-chaired by Gwenn White of the Contra Costa County Health Department and Doria Robinson, Executive Director of Urban Tilth.

THANK YOU to the Richmond Community Foundation for their generous support of this project since its’ inception in December 2011 and Kaiser HEAL for funding necessary to make sure the council has the capacity to make change. We could not grow, gaining the momentum necessary for change, without your support!
