If you live in Montgomery County and currently receive Food Stamps, WIC or any other food or nutrition assistance benefits, or simply find you cannot afford to feed your family nutritious meals, the Montgomery County Food Council encourages you to apply* for our Food Security Community Advisory Board to hear about your ability to access food in the County.
The Food Council has been coordinating and facilitating this initiative in which members are invited to share their experiences of food insecurity and their thoughts and perspectives on the County’s Food Security Plan, in addition to learning community engagement and advocacy skills which will be used to develop policies and action items that will guide the implementation of the Plan’s recommendations by the Food Council and its partners.
*Applications are being accepted until October 15th, 2019. Please find the application here.
Meetings will be held in the evenings once a quarter starting in December 2019, at locations in the County with access to public transportation.

*DINNER WILL PROVIDED AT EACH MEETING, ALONG WITH A STIPEND TO COVER TRANSPORTATION AND TIME SPENT *
