The Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy and the Los Angeles Food Policy Council actively follow Los Angeles food policy actions. In this 2016 Los Angeles Food Policy Tracker, substantial policy actions undertaken at both the City and County level are identified. Specifically, the tracker documents policies that were adopted, administratively closed, or are currently pending during the time period from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016. The tracker is divided into three sections: City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles, and Los Angeles Unified School District. For each policy action, the acting body, the policy status, a food system classification, and a brief description are provided.
The tracker is updated and re-released on an annual basis in order to monitor food policy developments in Los Angeles. This is the second Los Angeles Food Policy Tracker. The inaugural Los Angeles Food Policy Tracker documented food policy actions undertaken in Los Angeles from October 24th, 2012, when the City of Los Angeles made a significant food policy commitment in the form of adopting the Good Food Purchasing Pledge, to December 31, 2015.
