In partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, the FFHPC was convened by the Health Trust in 2018 in response to the reality that for many Pajaro Valley residents, the healthy choice is not always the easiest or most accessible choice when it comes to food and activity.


  • Establish policies, informed by experts and the voices of people with lived experience, that create a community environment where every resident has access to healthy food and safe public spaces for physical activity
  • Increase enrollment and utilization of federal food programs
  • Decrease availability of unhealthy options; deepen understanding of community issues that drive the over utilization of unhealthy options and explore practical, policy, and market changes that can be positively influenced by the Council.
