What is Food Advocacy
To ensure bringing a myriad of voices to this work, the Advocacy Working Group will take an active role to secure community engagement from throughout Pueblo County and the communities therein. This means developing strategic partnerships and sharing resources with organizations who represent groups underrepresented by the Pueblo Food Project, but impacted by Pueblo Food Project work. Building strong relationships across all sectors of the food system is crucial.
Engagement for Influence - Pueblo provides a structured, community-driven means to develop, implement, and influence food policy decisions in local organizations and local and state government.
The advocacy working group amplifies our community voice that takes positions and has influence on food policy within city, county, state, and institutional spheres.
The Advocacy Working Group will support the Pueblo Food Project coalition to develop, deliver, and evaluate advocacy campaigns on policy and project priorities defined and desired by coalition members and other working groups.
