About the Council

Our Food, Our People, Our Future

The Alaska Food Policy Council is open to anyone interested in improving Alaska’s food systems. Today, over 175 agencies and individuals representing federal and state agencies, tribal entities, schools, university programs, farmers, fisheries, and food systems businesses are members of the AFPC. The role of the AFPC is to collaborate on mutually beneficial solutions to food systems problems. AFPC’s intent is to provide recommendations and information regarding comprehensive policies that improve Alaska’s food systems.
