Abstract: The emergence of decentralized programs of Food Security in Brazil reinforces the importance of analyzing processes of formulation, implementation and evaluation of results and impacts of these initiatives. The objective of the present study was to characterize the Food Security Program of Campinas City (São Paulo State), contributing to the discussion about the municipal administration in this field. The analytical reference concerns three main dimensions of municipal public policies: the institutional dimension – policy; the procedural dimension (search of objectives and decision process) – politics; and the material dimension (programs configuration, technical problems and material content of decisions) – policy. The procedural dimension characterization demonstrated the existence of a strong link between the food security municipal program and Fome Zero program, even before it became a federal program. The importance of the relation between the formulators and those who implement the policies became evident with the institutional dimension characterization. Finally, the description of the projects that compose the program itself reinforces the importance of the coordination function, concerned with the benefits of the whole set of distinct projects.
