PLANT-FORWARD FOOD POLICY ALLIANCE
Leveraging the power of local governments to create
healthy, sustainable and ethical food systems
A world in which everyone has access to nutritious, plant-based food, produced in a way that protects and restores the environment, and in a system that provides animals with a life free from suffering.
Plant Forward Food Policy Alliance started as a class project for the Animal Law, Legislation and Lobbying class at Lewis and Clark Law School. Inspired by the Berkeley City Council's 2021 resolution to reduce its purchases of animal products by 50 percent, we're building a movement of cities and towns across the country that are shifting their food policies plant forward.
Plant-forward food policy promotes and supports plant-based diets to improve health, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, end farm animal suffering, and support rural communities.
We are building a coalition of healthcare providers, climate change activists, animal rights & welfare advocates, and family farmers who are working together to pass the country's first Plant-Forward Food Procurement Policy.

We're hoping to present this legislation to the Portland City Council in 2022. We need your support. Email us to learn more.
