MissionTo support a locally-anchored food system that advances Milwaukee's social, economic, environmental well-being through collective action.
What We DoThe Milwaukee Food Council, which began meeting in May 2007 as a group of community members concerned about the food system, incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 2014 and is
guided by an 11-member Board of Directors. Our coalition includes community members and organizations, professionals, and government officials committed to supporting a food system that is
community-driven, healthy, environmentally sustainable, and economically vibrant. We strive to incorporate diverse voices and perspectives, inclusive of all racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and other
identity groups, and uplift youth and intergenerational exchange. Through research, education, community development, and policy, we use collective action to advance these food system goals. We are just as much a movement as we are a network -- advancing culture, policy, and practice towards a healthier and more equitable food system.
