Collaboration is at the heart of our Food Policy Council.

Council & Committee Meetings

Committee 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.
