Get Involved

Collaboration is at the heart of our Food Policy Council.

There are many ways you can become a part of our work!

Become a Council Member

Applications to become a Council Member are now closed for the 2023 term.

Soon you will be able to learn more about our 2023 Council.

If you are interested in acting in this role in future terms, please make sure you receive our newsletter for updates and consider joining a Committee now.

Council & Committee Meetings

Meetings are open to all, but please note that these are working meetings with agendas.

We also host social activities, which we announce through our newsletter and through Green Umbrella communications.

Please feel encouraged to join us in both kinds of gatherings.

Join the mailing list for a Committee so you can receive pertinent email updates including:

  • Committee Meeting information, such as reminders, agendas, and follow-up tasks, and

  • Committee-relevant news and opportunities, like timely announcements about policy issues, grant opportunities, professional development, events, calls to action.
