Our work cultivates a more resilient, sustainable, and equitable local food system by enhancing food access for the 100,000+ residents at risk for hunger, expanding food education for residents, supporting County farms and food/beverage businesses, and addressing the environmental impact of local food production, distribution, consumption and recycling. MCFC currently leads community coordination and connection efforts to feed the County’s food insecure residents during COVID-19. MCFC creates community education tools, processes to collect food system data, and collaborative stakeholder networks to increase knowledge about hunger, environmental sustainability, supporting local businesses, and food education in our County.
The Food Council’s small team (currently of 8 people) collaborates closely with 25 volunteer Council Members and 200+ active working group partners and community members. The MCFC strives to cultivate a collaborative, supportive, and transparent work environment where all employees have opportunities to develop and apply new skills, independently shape and implement initiatives, and build partnerships with broad and diverse community stakeholder groups.
