Sonoma County Healthy & Sustainable Food Action Plan
The Sonoma County Healthy and Sustainable Food Action Plan (Action Plan) is a collaborative effort between the Sonoma County Department of Health Services, the Sonoma County Food System Alliance and community stakeholders provides a county-wide framework to stimulate and coordinate improvements within our food system. The Action Plan encourages local governments, businesses, organizations and individuals to commit to specific actions so they can play a role in building a viable food system for Sonoma County.
Alicia Vega, Food Service Director said, “We want students to understand the health benefits of eating a diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables and be active every day. We are happy to be able to offer students the opportunity to touch, smell and taste apples in their classrooms that are grown right here in Sonoma County.”
Supervisor Valerie Brown commented, “It’s time for us to join our efforts together so we can create a healthy local food system which supports all of our people. The Action Plan gives us a road map to get there, and offers simple actions clearly showing a role for everyone. With collective vision and the collaboration provided by the Action Plan, Sonoma County can make every day Food Day.”
