Promoting Sustainability in East Jefferson County, WA
The vision of the Jefferson County Local Food System Council (JCLFSC) is to attract volunteers from across the entire food system: farmers, value-added producers, regulatory people, health educators, restauranteurs, institutional food service folks, food retail, food security/food bank representatives, Grange members, resource waste management, elected officials, and concerned citizens, willing to meet monthly to consider how to strengthen our local food access for all.
Anyone with a commitment to community building and collaboration may fill out a Statement of Interest. While Statements of Interest can be submitted at any time, new members are typically seated in January of each year. The Statement of Interest can be downloaded here.
For further information about Food Council, contact jclocalfoodsystemcouncil[at]gmail.com.
To learn about what the JCLFSC has been up to over the past three years, check out our annual newsletters.
This document has motivated Jefferson County to begin exploring the instigation of our own Local Food Council.
Discussion is in process now with the intention of launching a Food and Farm Council in fall of this year, 2014.
