Stewards of Washington's Food System Roundtable

The Washington State Food System Roundtable was formed in 2012 by a broad and diverse coalition of government, agriculture, academic, and food-focused public and private partners with the goal of promoting a food system for our state that promotes the health of people, fosters a sustainable and resilient environment, is economically vibrant, and creates a more equitable and just society. The Round Table completed their five-year planning process in the spring of this year, 2017, with a roadmap of engagement and action goals to develop a vibrant, healthy, and equitable food system for our state. Food Action is now stepping in as an organizational leader to steward and facilitate these planning goals into action.
