Organizer

Tulsa Food Security Council

Tulsa Food Security Council began as a way to address the food system as a whole, bringing the weight of local, county or state government behind grassroots initiatives. Food Policy Councils work across sectors, engaging with government policy and programs, grassroots and non-profit projects, local businesses and food workers. Instead of many advocates working on the isolated symptoms of a failing food system, the Tulsa Food Security Council works to establish platforms for coordinated action at the local leve through policy, awareness, connectivity, and economics.
