This page will be an ongoing project of collecting links to organizations, documents and reports that may be of interest to folks.  If you have things you would like to see listed here contact Liz at hungerfree@worcesterfoodpolicy.org 

MA Food Policy Alliance
A statewide group of individuals and organizations representing agriculture, public health, anti-hunger, food justice, conservation, and sustainability that worked to pass the MA Food Policy Council bill and continue to collaborate and advocate for sound policies for the MA food system. 
MPHA Act FRESH Campaign
The MA Public Health Association’s campaign for policies that support healthy, active communities.  This report outlines their 2011 priorities which were determined by a state wide group of leaders in the food and active living movments.  HFH/Worc. Food & Active Living Policy Council is a member of the Leadership Team. 
National Policy and Legal Analysis Network (NPLAN)
NPLAN’s document library is full of great policy related resources, ranging from land use protection for Farmers’ Markets, to Healthy Zoning Areas around Schools, to 2012 Farm Bill resources. 
Community Food Security Coalition
The CFSC publications page is FULL of amazing reports, handouts, guidbooks, and more.  Most of them are free to download and range from issues on biofuels and food, to connecting Farmers’ Markets and SNAP recipients, to evaluating community food projects. 
WHY Hunger – Food Security Learning Center
This online library of resources is incredibly extensive, covering topics ranging from farmworkers, to community suported agriculture, food deserts, local and regional food systems, and racism and the food system. 
U.S. Food Sovereignty Alliance
A new alliance that grew out of the U.S. Working Group on the Food Crisis.  The organization launched at the CFSC National Conference in New Orleans in 2010.  They have a few good resources on food sovereignty and I’m sure will be building their website more and more. 
La Via Campesina
This is the international leaders in the Food Sovereignty movement, uniting leaders around the world to demand rights of peoples to control their food.  They are very active throughout the world and are a good gauge on the world food situation and on the work for rights of farmers and peasants worldwide.
