Michael Dimock is the Program Director for PHI’s Roots of Change. He is a strategist, organizer and advocate for food and farming systems change to achieve public health goals. Since 1996, Michael has been inspiring and leading education and policy campaigns and facilitating community dialogues and creative engagements with government and corporate leaders to advance food and farm policies and practices that make agriculture and food enterprises solutions to critical public health and racial justice challenges. His leadership has rendered one new law and funding program at the federal level and three new California laws that include two new funding programs sustained by ROC’s five successful budget requests. As a result, nearly $400 million in funding for improved nutrition has flowed to community-based organizations. He has been a valued voice in passing regenerative agriculture policies that have resulted in $500 million in state funding to provide farmers with incentives to reduce emissions and/or capture carbon and retain water in the soil and to reduce the use of toxic chemicals on farms and antibiotics in livestock operations.
