OUR FOOD, OUR PEOPLE, OUR FUTURE
The AFPC is open to anyone interested in improving Alaskas food systems - agencies and individuals representing federal and state agencies, tribal entities, schools, university programs, farmers, fisheries, and food systems businesses. The role of the AFPC is to:
CONNECT: Engage with Alaskans to get input to strengthen our food system, and to connect them with each other to learn and collaborate.
ADVOCATE: Develop recommendations and share them with policymakers at the local, state, federal, and tribal levels.
INFORM: Share information, resources, opportunities, and risks with all food stakeholders (everyone who eats!)
