There’s no reason to reinvent the wheel. Food council members across North Carolina and the United States are interested in learning from others and sharing their experiences. Connect with others through a variety of ways shown below.
Community Food Strategies convenes food councils statewide and by region through quarterly calls and gatherings. We encourage you to reach out to your fellow food council leaders and members to share ideas, learn and collaborate when possible.
