About the Food Council

Food Access & Literacy Work Group

The Food Access & Literacy Work Group works collaboratively to develop innovative initiatives to increase the number of healthy food access points in the Fairfax community in the areas of highest need. The work group also facilitates collaborative initiatives to develop food literacy and nutrition education programming that is available and delivered through a variety of avenues.

Urban Agriculture Work Group

The Urban Agriculture Work Group supports local food production to improve the human, environmental and economic health of our community. The vision of the work group is a healthy, beautiful and equitable Fairfax County where fresh food is grown within walking distance of every kitchen.
