Start Food Policy Councils

Start Food Policy Councils

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step ~Lao-tzu

If your community, municipality, region, county, province, state, country or planet doesn't have a Food Policy Council... start one.

How to start a Food Policy Council:

Communicate via Social Media
Start a Facebook page, twitter account, blog, google group/list & email.

Host a meeting
Book a room, set a meeting date, create an agenda and promote/invite local food groups and individuals to the founding/organizational meeting of your community's food policy council.

Have the meeting
Start talking about Food Policy in your community. The rest will follow... The most important action is to initiate the discussion.
