What You Can Do

Everyone deserves to eat healthy, affordable food. The City of Seattle works with local partners to identify, establish and promote programs and policies that connect people (especially children, seniors, and those in need) to good food. This includes improving education and access to fresh, local food and providing the tools to prepare and share meals. Below are opportunities for you to take a more active role in supporting a healthy food system.
