Food Justice

Within our FoodFitPhilly program, Food Justice is our effort to support the self-determination of Philadelphians to grow, sell and eat healthy food. We do this by:

  • Establishing just food policy and supporting community-led nutrition projects.
  • Setting nutrition standards and promoting best practices for City agencies, hospital systems, and early childhood education.
