Plan Research Banner

To create a thoroughly researched and well-constructed plan that will help leverage resources from the public and private sector on a local, state and national level, the project team assessed local, national and international plans that address food-related issues. The Columbus & Franklin County Local Food Action Plan joins the still small but growing number of cities that have focused attention on the need to plan specifically for food.
