Food Policy and Advocacy

jgfWhile making personal food choices is key to incremental change in the food system, we can make broad-sweeping change by committing to changing our institutions’ buying patterns. One way Hazon supports this work is through the Food Guide & Audit Toolkit, which institutions can use to evaluate the work they are already doing around food and learn how they can improve upon their work.

Using the Toolkit, institutions are encouraged to make food policies, statements of values and decision-making strategies around food procurement. In these pages, we will find tools to help you think about the impact of food purchasing on a much larger scale, from your local Jewish institution to the web of producers around the world that brings us our food.
