About the Food Council

The Montgomery County Food Council is an independent nonprofit organization, formed and led by individual community members and representatives of local businesses, government, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions that broadly represent the food system both substantively and geographically.

We bring together a diverse representation of stakeholders to improve the environmental, economic, social, and nutritional health of Montgomery County, Maryland through the creation of a robust, sustainable, equitable local food system.

The backbone of our work is our four Working Groups: Food Recovery and Access, Food Economy, Food Education, and Environmental Impact.

Join one of our Working Groups to get involved!
