Promising Practices for New Food Policy Councils
Published by Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, this guide provides resources for food coalitions and food policy councils to "get off the ground and take action in their community." The virtual food summit hosted by PCFC is highlighted as an example of how food policy councils responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by offering virtual programming (page 49).

The Palouse-Clearwater Food Coalition (PCFC) was formed in 2011 with the goal of strengthening the health and vibrancy of the Palouse-Clearwater food system by increasing production, distribution, and consumption of locally grown food and agriculture products. The PCFC serves a rural, eight-county region that includes parts of southeastern Washington and north central Idaho.
The mission of the Palouse-Clearwater Food Coalition is to strengthen the health and vibrancy of the Palouse-Clearwater food system and increase the production, distribution, and consumption of locally grown food and agricultural products.
Members of the Palouse-Clearwater Food Coalition have a shared interest in growing our local food system. Members work in a variety of food system sectors and include representatives from regional and community organizations, university programs, agencies, non-profits and retail businesses.
