Increase food security by supporting stakeholders in the food system to plan for changing weather and extreme events.
The City will partner with stakeholders engaged in food production and distribution to identify strategies to prepare for disruptions from extreme weather events. In addition, the City will initiate an education program to encourage residents to store necessary food supplies in case of an emergency.
On the production side, strategies may include the adoption of revised land management practices. On the distribution side, the City will partner with food retailers and Texas trade retailers to prepare for disruptions from extreme weather events by having a business continuity plan in place. The City can provide training and sample plans to help stakeholders understand and prepare for climate-related risks.
