The Ottawa County Food Policy Council

Collaborative effort to ensure access to healthy, local and affordable food.

The Ottawa County Food Policy Council (OCFPC) is a collaboration of local agencies and individuals that exists to ensure that all Ottawa County residents have access to healthy, local, and affordable food choices. The vision of the OCFPC is an available supply of well-balanced meals for all.

The OCFPC consists of members from a variety of backgrounds, including local public health, United Way, food pantries, human service organizations, food security advocates, MSU Extension, Feeding America West Michigan, farmers, and many others.

The OCFPC developed a strategic plan for 2016-2018 which consists of 3 priority areas:

1 Eliminate Hunger in Ottawa County

2 Healthy Eating by All

3 Increase Sourcing of Local Food

One OCFPC subcommittee is dedicated to addressing each of these priority areas. Each subcommittee meets monthly and the entire OCFPC meets as a large group quarterly. In addition, the OCFPC Advisory Board meets quarterly.
