The activities of the Food Council are accomplished primarily through our Working Groups, led by Council Members and populated by concerned residents with a shared commitment to making a positive impact in our food system. These subcommittees develop and executive initiatives, support policies, and facilitate partnerships connected to their specific goals.

Anyone is invited to join the Working Groups, which meet more frequently and independently than the whole Food Council. Public participation in our working groups is essential for our success and we welcome all volunteers to join our effort.

Please contact info@mocofoodcouncil.com if you or your organization/business is interested in getting involved. Information on the mission, current projects, and meeting details is available on each Working Group page.

Please fill out this form and we’ll get in touch!
