This will be an informal opportunity to ask questions, give input and feedback, and learn more about DC food policy.

  • Do you have ideas or questions about food access, urban agriculture, or other food topics in DC?
  • Looking for ways to get involved outside of Food Policy Council meetings?
  • Need advice, information, or research for a school project?

Join us on the 1st Friday of every month for an informal chat with the DC Food Policy Director and staff! We will move the location each month to engage with District residents where they live and work.

The DC Food Policy team will be there, with coffee, and would love to chat with you.

Hope to see you there!
