About Us

Ottawa Food – Formerly The Ottawa County Food Policy Council

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

Ottawa Food 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. Our vision is an available supply of well-balanced meals for all.

Ottawa Food 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.

Ottawa Food 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 subcommittee is dedicated to addressing each of these priority areas. Each subcommittee meets monthly and Ottawa Food meets as a large group quarterly, as does the Ottawa Food Advisory Board.
