In response to input from the food system community, the Montgomery County Food Council is pleased to launch this Partner Directory – a resource that will strengthen food system networks in our County and facilitate connections between food entrepreneurs, farmers, food assistance providers, community educators, advocacy leaders, sustainability stakeholders, and other residents and organizations engaged in our local food system.

Participation in the Directory is free to all local and regional businesses, nonprofit organizations, government entities, and community partners engaged in cultivating a robust, sustainable, and equitable local food system. Please complete this form to register. The Directory will be updated quarterly.

If you have any questions, please email info@mocofoodcouncil.org
