Food Policy Office Hours

The Food Policy Director holds monthly virtual office hours on the first Friday of every month from 10-11am. This is an opportunity to bring questions or feedback about DC food policy topics. The office hours are informal and the topics covered will depend on who joins each month. To receive the Zoom link for office hours, please email or call (202) 442-7600.

At this time, the Food Policy Director and our small team do not have the capacity for one-on-one interviews for research projects or informational interviews.
