Boston Food Access Council

The network of local leaders addresses food insecurity and related issues in Boston.

Our goal is to create a unified, strategic plan to help City residents get access to the food they need and want. This plan will guide the work of the Mayor’s Office of Food Access (OFA) and partner agencies. OFA put the council together in June 2017.

As part of its work, the council will:

  • offer its support and expertise to make sure the City’s programs and policies related to improving food access match the needs of residents
  • create a unified strategy to address food insecurity with the help of the Mayor’s Office of Food Access and partner agencies
  • use the influence of the groups on the council to promote the City’s food security initiatives, and
  • listen to the feedback and suggestions of the public at our open meetings.
