The Food Education Working Group’s (formerly the Food Literacy Working Group) mission is to improve the eating habits of those who live, work, or play in Montgomery County.
The Food Literacy Assessment includes data on the resources offered by more than 100 community stakeholders, including, but not limited to, food assistance providers, hospital wellness representatives, faith-based organizations, garden education providers, culinary and nutrition educators.
The FEdWG’s goal is for this assessment to be used to identify food literacy gaps, better allocate resources, strengthen collaboration and resource sharing among providers, and advocate for an increase in and improvement of food education programs in the County.
In December 2019, the Food Council hosted “The Future of Food Education in Montgomery County,” to convene more than 70 food system stakeholders, food educators, and County policymakers to discuss the food literacy needs in our community. Recommendations that resulted from the discussion included:
Nov 2- Dec 21
Discuss current nutrition and health topics and discover new ways to be active.
