    Governor Brian Sandoval issued an Executive Order on February 12, 2014 establishing the Governor's Council on Food Security within the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Food Security. The Council was created to implement the goals of Food Security in Nevada: Nevada's Plan for Action and effectively improve the quality of life and health of Nevadans by increasing food security throughout the State.

      A Community Needs Assessment published in 2012 by the Grants Management Unit identified hunger and access to food as a top priority across the State of Nevada. To address this issue, a steering committee comprised of representatives from several State departments and the food safety network was convened to develop a strategic plan with goals and objectives intended to increase food security in Nevada. The Office of Food Security was created within the Director's Office of the Department of Health and Human Services to provide leadership in attaining the goals identified in the strategic plan.
