There is a role for every individual, organization, business and government to play in building a food system that creates health and prosperity for both our people and our environment.
The FAP places opportunities and concerns into 4 action areas (pillars), and within each area, key goals are articulated and details of policies and recommendations are enumerated into sub-goals. In recognizing the importance of measuring progress, FAP used 8 criteria for identifying indicators to track the food system in Sonoma County, and selected appropriate indicators for each pillar. The four pillars include:
- Agriculture and Natural Resources
- Economic Vitality
- Healthy Eating
- Social Equity
Additionally, a declaration of support, sample resolution, and suggestions for individual actions, and supplementary examples of actions are also included in FAP. These provide the necessary tools and resources for local organizations to advance the identified food system goals.
