Promoting Sustainability in East Jefferson County, WA
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.
WSU and Citizens for Local Food are collaborating to launch a new Local Food Council for Jefferson County. The vision 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 several times a year specifically 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, and return it to WSU by the deadline, October 20th. The Statement of Interest can be downloaded at:
