This paper presents a case of arrangement of a network of strong social cohesion linked to local food security programs in Araraquara, a municipality in Sao Paulo state countryside and one of the pioneers in launching public policy in such a dimension. The overall objective of this work is to show the main efficiencies and institutional and organizational obstacles encountered in the core network that has been formed in that county. A key finding is that in that municipality of midsize and relevant generation of wealth for the state of São Paulo, there are small family farmers composing a network of local food security policy that has as a tool to foster the EAP (Acquisition Program Food) from the federal government. This will be demonstrated through an analysis of the characteristics of producers and the connections of the network of food safety policies.
