Please see the following message from Kelly Flemming with iServe Mohawk Valley:
Just a little promo attached re: what the iServe Program is doing in conjunction with Sodexo for NY Food Day here on Rome MVCC Campus. We are encouraging students to wear Red, come and get free apples and pose for a photo as we “Crunch”!
The next MVFAN meeting is the 24th (Tuesday) from 2-4pm. We will have a short presentation from Utica Greens, some updates from EDGE, and discussion of task force responsibilities.
Attached are the minutes Jan took at the last meeting. On that note, this will be my last MVFAN meeting taking notes as I am leaving in the middle of November. Thanks for everyone's support over the years. And if anyone is interested and available to be the new note taker, please let us know.
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.
The Mohawk Valley Food Action Network engages the communities of Oneida County and the surrounding region to create a healthy and secure future based on a productive, resilient local food system where affordable, healthy and nutritious food is accessible to all.
