Healthy Food Policy Project

Overview

The Healthy Food Policy Project (HFPP) identifies and elevates local laws that seek to promote access to healthy food, and also contribute to strong local economies, an improved environment, and health equity, with a focus on socially disadvantaged and marginalized groups.

The Healthy Food Policy Project is a four-year collaboration of Vermont Law School’s Center for Agriculture and Food Systems, the Public Health Law Center, and the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at the University of Connecticut. This project is funded by the National Agricultural Library, Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture.

This web site helps healthy food advocates, local policy makers, and local public health agencies in their quest to champion healthy food access in their communities and inclues a curated, searchable database of local healthy food policies.
