The Food Law and Policy Association

The Food Law and Policy Association (FLAP) is dedicated to providing students with an opportunity to learn about and actively participate in food law and policy issues, such as poverty and food access, food waste, sustainable and ethical farming initiatives, urban agriculture, obesity and diabetes, FDA/USDA regulation, and food-related legislation. 

FLAP organizes a number of educational, professional, and social events throughout the year. FLAP also sponsors many community service events so students can get involved with the local food community, including trips to the farmers market, farm work with We The People Growers Association, and volunteering at Food Gatherers.

Members of FLAP have had the opportunity to work on substantive legal food issues. For example, students conduct legal research for the Socially Responsible Agriculture Project and work on 501(c)(3) applications for food-related nonprofit organizations.
