According to its website, Food Policy Action was established in 2012 through a collaboration of national food policy leaders in order to hold legislators accountable on votes that have an effect on food and farming. Through education and the National Food Policy Scorecard, more people will be armed with the information they need to vote with their forks and elect more food policy leaders across the country.
The organization's mission includes the promotion of policies that support, among other things, increasing transparency, improving public health and reducing the risk of foodborne illnesses.
Food Policy Action is a 501(c)(4) organization. Donations to Food Policy Action are not tax-deductible.
