The mission of the Mayor's Office of Food Justice (OFJ) is to build a food system that is equitable, resilient, sustainable, and just. OFJ works to expand equitable access to nutritious food with respect to:

  • affordability
  • physical accessibility, and
  • cultural connectedness.

We support Boston’s food economy and promote environmentally sustainable and resilient food production.

We're building on the work of the City’s previous Office of Food Access. We embed food systems and racial equity approaches into existing food access programming. We pursue whole-of-government strategies, in partnership with GrowBoston, that leverage City resources and partnerships to:

  • shift the city and region’s food system
  • reduce food insecurity, and
  • address the food system’s impact on climate.

This includes close partnerships with other city and state departments. We facilitate a community of practice of organizations, businesses, and entities in the City. These groups are addressing food insecurity and inequitable food access by developing a new food system.
