Policy Priority Working Groups

 

Our Policy Priority Working Groups, which continue the important work of the Environmental Impact, Food Economy, and Food Education Working Groups in past years, connect community partners in virtual learning opportunities and in-person site visits to advance our understanding of issues and pursuit of policy change. Topics evolve over time to align with our current organizational Policy Priorities. All meetings are open to the public; pre-registration is required. Each working group meets bi-monthly, alternating virtual meetings featuring panel presentations, subject matter expert speakers, and facilitated discussion with visits to sites across the region showcasing real-life examples of the focus policy issue in action.
