Seattle Food Action Plan

City Of Seattle   
Urban | Suburban |
The city adopted the “Seattle Food Action Plan” in 2013, created by the Office of Sustainability and Environment, that lays out specific strategies to get more healthy food to more Seattle residents. This plan is aimed at expanding opportunities for people to grow and procure healthy food in the city, enhancing the regional economy, and reducing food-related waste. The Food Action Plan involves many departments of the city, including the Human Services Department, responsible for developing community gardens to provide meal programs for children and the homeless, and the Department of Neighborhoods which oversees the P-Patch Community Gardening Program.
