Get involved in the food conversation

Written by 

The Public Policy Institute at Western Carolina University will host a meeting to determine community needs and support for a Far West North Carolina Local Food Policy Council at 7 p.m. July 30 in the Cardinal Room of the Western Carolina University Center.

The council would focus on planning and advocating for greater food security and stronger food economies in the seven western counties. Regional economic development agencies, planning personnel, tourism staff, farmers, processors, market directors, community nonprofit representatives, and food security agency representatives are especially encouraged to attend.

The project aims to bring together food providers, distribution networks, policy leaders, food security agencies, and economic advocates to provide vision and structure for food projects in the target region.
