The Food Policy Audit is an innovative method of assessing a locality's food policy climate by starting from where we would like to be and quantifying progress toward our goals. The Audit can be used to assess a locality's food policy climate in four broad categories: Promoting Local Food, Sustainability, and Community Food Security; Zoning and Land Use; Addressing Public Health and Food Access; and Fostering Social Equity.
