The Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Food Policy Coalition
was formed in 2007 to help bring about public and private policy-based changes that foster an all-around healthier food system. The Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods was a co-convener of the Coalition.
The Coalition has based its work on assessments of how food can impact the health of individuals, communities, the economy, and the environment. Results of the Coalition's work were recognized in the most recent SustainLane U.S. City Rankings, where Cleveland scored #2 among the 50 largest cities in Local Food & Agriculture - helping it claim #16 in overall sustainability.
