What is the Good Food Agenda?

The Good Food Agenda is an omnibus platform for systemic statewide action to improve the food system in Washington State. There are four core focus areas of the Agenda: Food Justice, Food Equity, Public Health, and Environmental Protection and Sustainability.

Together we believe that these four focus areas encompass a whole systems approach to food that is better for everyone, serving the people and the planet. For each core focus area we have chosen a specific measure and action. More information on our Actions is listed below. With the help of you, our members, we can improve the health, equity, justice, and environmental sustainability of the food system here in Washington.
