Update from the Hampshire County Food Policy Council:
The Hampshire County Food Policy Council will be presenting their framework to the community on January 18th and 25th, 2022. They welcome new stakeholders in Hampshire County in the planning process. Both meetings will be held virtually, and are designed to be highly accessible, with accommodations that include interpretation. The Council will identify and propose innovative solutions to make local food systems more economically and environmentally sustainable and socially just. Members of the community are invited to learn more at the January 18th open informational meeting. In the second meeting on January 25th, participants who are interested in joining the ongoing work will have an opportunity to engage in working sessions, with more time spent in groups and a focus on storytelling and conversation. Those interested in attending the January gatherings can sign up at the FPC website. To learn more, read our newsroom blog article here.
