The agenda for July's meeting will include an update and brainstorming session on the Farm to School issue given by Jake Perrin from CCE from 2-3pm. Then from 3-4, Jim Manning and Charlie Sweet will present a preliminary proposal for an updtae to the USDA Hunger Free Communities Project, which provided the original impetus for launching the Food Policy Council. In the last 15 minutes, we will also be asking all council members if they still wish to be on the council and see if they still wish to be a member. I also attached the notes from the June meeting. There will be no August meeting.
This is just a reminder that the next MVFAN meeting will be on June 27th from 2-4pm at the Community Foundation. Ryan Miller will be speaking about updates regarding setting up a website for our group and the Farm to School Initiative. Then we will break out into task force groups to work on feasibility or education. During this time, people will also be asked to give a 60 second mini pitch about you/your organization/why/how are you involved in the food system. These videos will them be used as part of the marketing materials for our new webites so we would love if people could come prepared with just a small snippet to say.
