Handout for Corralling the Bureaucracy: How to Work Toward Integrated Citywide Food Policy

  1. 1. Corralling the Bureaucracy: How to collaborate across departments to achieve integrated citywide food policy Group activity guidelines 1. Break into small groups – mingling encouraged! 2. As individuals, spend a couple minutes coming up with a scenario – think big or small and identify a food systems related policy/program you’d like to see happen in your city (e.g. You’d like your city to source 20% of fresh produce from within city boundaries within the next 10 years). 3. As a group, choose one of your ideas to move forward with, then identify: Internal partners (at least 4 departments/sectors) and why you’ll need them Community partnerships that might help move your project forward Goals of your idea and how it will improve your local food system The structure you’ll use to move your idea forward (e.g. an IDT or maybe something less formal) Timeline How to measure success Identify needed resources (staff, budget, etc), but don’t get hung up on $ Assessment/research needed What kind of interdepartmental coordination is needed to establish this as a sustainable, on-going effort Political challenges Other anticipated challenges You will have 25 minutes to come up with an idea and identify the items above. Facilitators will be on hand to update you on time left, and you can feel free to ask us questions. If you’re getting a lot of great dialogue out of this, don’t worry too much about getting through all of the items. Each team will then have an opportunity (1-2 min) to share what your project was and key lessons learned from this activity.
