Santa Fe Food Plan


In October 2014, the Santa Fe Food Policy Council, an advisory body to Santa Fe County, released the first food systems plan for the region. The document – Planning for Santa Fe’s Food Future: Querencia, a Story of Food, Farming, and Friends – highlights several goal areas and policy action items, focusing on how the community accesses, produces and shares knowledge about food.

The food systems plan builds upon previous work of the Santa Fe Food Policy Council and Santa Fe County, including Santa Fe Food Policy Council’s Community Food Assessment, Santa Fe County 2013: A Community Health Profile, and The City of Santa Fe’s  Sustainable Santa Fe. Plan

Growing Food Connections, a federally-funded research initiative to strengthen community food systems nationwide, recently released a database with over 100 newly adopted local government policies aimed to strengthen food systems. The Growing Food Connections Policy Database, hosted by the School of Architecture and Planning at the University at Buffalo, will assist local governments as they work to broaden access to healthy food and help sustain local farms and food producers.
