Community food organizations and other interested food and agriculture interests are turning to the development of food policy councils to coordinate their efforts and influence public policy to promote a just and sustainable food system.
About the Training
This training session will provide stakeholders in Florida with information on food policy council organization, operation, membership, and purposes. The session will allow sufficient time and opportunity for participants to determine if and how a food policy council will advance their common agenda and what steps are needed to organize it. Participants are expected to include representatives from the private non-profit, private for-profit, and public sectors.
About the Trainer
The session will be led by Mark Winne who has 20 years of experience assisting communities around the country with the development of food policy councils. He is the Food Policy Council Project Director of the Community Food Security Coalition.
