The American food system is greatly influenced and controlled by U.S. food policy. Food policy impacts the availability of healthy and affordable food, national health guidelines, school lunches, agricultural practices, and the environment, to name a few areas. Most of us are unaware of what issues are being debated and decided upon in food policy, even though the results affect our daily lives. Fortunately, there are some excellent websites that take a critical look at our food system and food policy, and help to bring mainstream attention to important issues we should know about.

Below is a list of some of the top websites focused on food policy.

We advance our mission through three interrelated work areas—research, education, and action—designed to promote informed citizen engagement with the institutions and policies that control our food.


Food Policy ActionFood policy action – Food Policy Action was established in 2012 through a collaboration of national food policy leaders in order to hold legislators accountable on votes that have an effect on food and farming. Our goal is to change the national dialogue on food policy by educating the public on how elected officials are voting on these issues. Through education and the National Food Policy Scorecard, more people will be armed with the information they need to vote with their forks and elect more food policy leaders across the country.
