What needs to happen in Texas to ensure every person has the food they need to thrive regardless of natural disasters, public health emergencies, supply chain disruptions, or economic distress? Austin has the immediate opportunity to reimagine the role of local government in food access. By exploring the creation of a public food utility and food hub, the Mayor and City Council, Austin Travis County Food Policy Board, and Office of Sustainability can shape an approach that ensures that no Central Texan goes hungry because of natural disasters, public health emergencies, supply chain disruptions, or economic distress.

Join the discussion as we reimagine the relationship that local government, non-profits, and private sector could create to make more resilient food supply chain that can withstand the expected ‘shocks and stressors’ to our climate in the coming decades.
