For those who are just getting started in the food policy and planning world, please join Food Policy Networks next week to learn more about how your city government can engage in food systems work. Over the past ten years, we have witnessed a surge in food-related activities in communities around the country, including the formation of food policy councils, expansion of healthy food purchase incentives, and growth of urban agriculture initiatives. While non-profit and community organizations are driving much of this work, city governments are also playing a leading role in developing and strengthening policy to support food systems. Tune into this webinar to hear food policy council organizers from Milwaukee, WI; Columbus, OH; and Baltimore, MD discuss their accomplishments and relationships with city government. Center for a Livable Future and Center for Government Excellence (GovEx) staff will also discuss how to use data and tools to understand your jurisdiction’s food system. Join us for the conversation on May 30th at 1 p.m., and start food planning in your city. Click here to register
