The W.K. Kellogg Foundation has awarded a grant of $261,965 to the Center for Agriculture and Food Systems (CAFS) at Vermont Law School and Harvard Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic (FLPC) to fund a project to inform national food policy reform, CAFS announced today. The goal of the project, titled “Blueprint for Integrated National Food Policy,” is to create a more healthful, environmentally sustainable and equitable food system that better serves children and other vulnerable populations in the United States.
“We are excited to begin this important project with the Center for Agriculture and Food Systems,” said Emily M. Broad Leib, director of Harvard’s Food Law and Policy Clinic. “Creating this blueprint will allow us to spearhead what we hope will be a productive conversation about the federal policy changes essential to align our food and agricultural system with the important goals of health, sustainability, and equity. This project will create avenues for dialogue that engage a broad swath of stakeholders and, via online opportunities for engagement, allow for open source policy innovation. We are delighted that the Kellogg Foundation has offered its support of this important work.”
