Webinar: Building food council networks that support health, local economies and equity

December 17, 2020 2:30PM - 4:00PM EST


Contact: Rich Pirog, Liz Gensler

This webinar will share how Kansas, Michigan, and North Carolina have each developed robust local food (policy) council networks. These networks connect councils and local level coalitions to foster more equitable food systems that advance health and economic opportunity locally, regionally, and statewide. Presenters will discuss how they have leveraged partnerships to support more democratic action on local food, farming, and health issues and inform state policy. They will discuss responses to COVID-19 in their work, the importance of using an equity lens, lessons learned, and where their work is going next.

Registration for the webinar is required. There is no cost to participate. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
