Utah Food Security Council

Utah Food Security Council

The Utah Food Security Council (FSC) was established through Senate Bill 133. The goal of the council is to provide recommendations at a policy level to make sure more Utah families, especially those with children, have access to food. The council aims to coordinate statewide efforts in addressing food security by developing goals and messaging for nutrition education, ensuring consistency in federally funded programs, promoting healthy eating and active lifestyles, advancing Utah food products, and disseminating messaging to state agencies.

One in 10 Utah households experience food insecurity and more than 102,000 Utah families do not have the resources to buy enough food.

We want to support our local growers. I want them to be the ones feeding our families.
