A Good Food Economy in L.A is a part of the economy of a country at peace with its neighbors and its environment - the air, the land, the water and the creatures living in, on and under it. It is the local embodiment of a regional, national and international economy in which people have useful work to do at fair wages, affordable access to housing, health care, education and a secure retirement. A Good Food Economy will:
- Deliver to every single resident of Los Angeles enough Good Food to ensure them a healthy, vigorous, and satisfying life.
- Help produce useful work at fair wages for residents of Los Angeles and the entire Southern California region.
- Enable the residents of the city and the surrounding region to control decisions about how and what food is made available to them.
- Prevent those decisions from being made in far-away places by individuals remote from the life of the residents.
- Be a sustainable, self-reliant, localized economy owned and operated largely by residents of Los Angeles.
- Produce health, wealth and justice, by, for and under the capable, practiced control of, all of the residents of Los Angeles and the entire Southern California region.
Its Goals Include:
- Coordinating activities in Los Angeles for national Food Day (held annually on October 24th), in partnership with RENEW LA.
- Organizing Good Food Day LA for spring 2012, in partnership with the Office of Mayor Villaraigosa.
- Establishing Good Food for All Speaker Series, in partnership with the California Endowment.
- Advising and assist the L.A Food Policy Council with educational content for its website and social media strategy.
