Clare Fox

Executive Director of the Los Angeles Food Policy Council.

Clare Fox is the Executive Director of the Los Angeles Food Policy Council (LAFPC). LAFPC is a collective impact non-profit created by the City of Los Angeles working to make Southern California a Good Food region for everyone—where food is healthy, affordable, fair and sustainable. In this role, she collaborates closely with a large network of public, private, non-profit and community sector leaders to catalyze policy and systems change for a sustainable and equitable food system. Previously, she created and directed LAFPC’s flagship community engagement program, the Healthy Neighborhood Market Network, which offers business and leadership development opportunities to neighborhood markets in low-income communities to help them sell more fresh and healthy food. While at the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles, Clare established a food access investment program called the Community Market Conversion Program, and coordinated a pilot in South Los Angeles in partnership with the LA County Department of Public Health. She also worked with UCLA Downtown Labor Center and Green For All on green job workforce development initiatives. Before studying urban planning and community economic development for her Masters degree in Urban Planning at UCLA, Clare produced and taught radio production to young people throughout Los Angeles for Youth Radio and National Public Radio. All her work is informed by a lifelong commitment to social and racial justice.
