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).

Our Mission

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.

Our Programs

We host regular networking meetings, community roundtables, skill building workshops and an annual Food Summit in Moscow, Idaho at the end of January.   

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.
