Webinar: Elevating the Community's Voice Roundtable Discussion (2017)

Many food policy councils strive for diverse representation across races, classes, occupations, genders, and ages to ensure they prioritize the food systems issues and solutions most appropriate to their communities. However, councils continue to be challenged to find effective strategies for engaging and empowering those most impacted by food systems issues. Learn about strategies for effective community inclusion and lessons learned from food poilcy practitioners Nathan Ballentine (Tallahassee Food Network), Winona Bynum (Detroit Food Policy Council), Holly Freishtat (Baltimore Food Policy Initiative), Natilee McGruder (Montgomery Roots), and Helen Schnoes (Douglas County Food Policy Council).
