CHIP’s Food Systems Initiative works to create a healthy, sustainable, and just food system. In collaboration with many San Diego County institutions, food and farm businesses, food systems advocates, and community partners, we are helping grow the good food movement in San Diego County. CHIP’s Food Systems Department focuses on three key areas:
- Farm-to-Institution: Working with San Diego County schools, hospitals, local government, farmers, produce distributors, good food businesses, and community partners to bring more good food to hundred of thousands of people across San Diego County.
- Food Systems Research: Conducting innovative food systems research with and for food and farm businesses, nonprofits, local governments, social enterprises, and foundations working to improve the food system.
- Food Justice: Highlighting and addressing systemic inequality in the food system, strategically contributing to food justice initiatives as an ally wherever possible.
