Overview

The Napa County Local Food Advisory Council (LFAC) advises the Agricultural Commissioner/Sealer of Weights regarding development and facilitation of a sustainable local food system, and provides a forum for public input regarding related issues.

The LFAC assists Napa County staff in promoting local food production and consumption; in undertaking a review of County regulations to identify and address barriers and opportunities associated with local food production, distribution, and access; and in recommending to the Napa County Board of Supervisor’s Legislative Subcommittee needed changes in State law for incorporation into the County’s legislative platform.
