The Douglas County Food Policy Council, established by the County Commission in 2010, seeks to identify the benefits, challenges, and opportunities for a successful, sustainable local food system in Douglas County.

The Douglas County Food Policy Council meets every third Monday of the month from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at various locations throughout our Douglas County food system. All meetings are open to the public.
