Planning for Food Justice: Advancing Equity and Food Access in Land Use Planning Through California’s SB 1000

October 4, 2023, 12:00 – 1:00pm

In 2016, the California legislature passed Senate Bill 1000: The Planning for Healthy Communities Act, to require cities and counties with “disadvantaged communities” to integrate environmental justice into their General Plans. In this lecture at UC Center Sacramento, BFI Faculty Director Charisma Acey will discuss a BFI supported research project to understand how SB 1000 was implemented across the state, if and how cities and counties have incorporated food access, how local governments engaged community groups in their planning, and how food and environmental justice efforts can be complementary and codified through local and state policies.
