Public Policy Advocacy

A vibrant and healthy food system is possible only if there are policies, infrastructure and resources to support it. For this reason, PCC advocates public policies that support sustainable food and agricultural systems. This section provides an archive of letters and petitions sent to policymakers during public comment periods.

Animal Welfare

Humane treatment of farm animals is integral to our own well-being and the health of our planet. We push for comprehensive animal welfare laws and petition companies to raise the standard on how they treat animals.

Seafood, Oceans & Water

Responsible stewardship of our oceans is critical for our planet’s health. We support legislation that protects marine species and the health of our waters.

Toxins & Pollution

Reducing the use of toxic chemicals is essential for cleaner water, air and food. We push our lawmakers to create strong policies that protect the health of people and the environment.

Organic, Family-scale Farming

Organic production, regenerative farming, and responsible land management are fundamental for healthy ecosystems and strong rural communities. We promote policies that support and invest in sustainable agriculture.

Food Access, Nutrition and Label Transparency

Our policy team works hard to ensure broader support for community nutrition programs, healthier food options for all and transparency in ingredients and nutrition.

GMOs & Nanotechnology

Consumers have the right to know how their food is produced and to make an informed choice. We support transparency in labeling for genetically engineered foods and encourage responsible technology.

Fair Labor

We are committed to be a positive force in the lives of people who work in our supply chain. We support laws that protect human rights and continue to work with suppliers to ensure fair treatment of employees.
