Since early 2019, the Food Council has been coordinating and facilitating a Food Security Community Advisory Board (FSCAB), 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.
The Food Council thanks the community members and partners who have contributed to the success of the Food Security Community Advisory Board since its creation:
Thank you to the Healthcare Initiative Foundation for supporting this program!
