The activities of the DC Food Policy Council are accomplished primarily through our working groups, led by appointed Council Members and populated by residents, organizations, and businesses with a shared commitment furthering the goals of the DCFPC. These working groups develop policy recommendations, execute and support events and programs, and facilitate partnerships connected to their specific goals.
Anyone is invited to join the Working Groups, which meet on alternative months from the DC Food Policy Council whole council members. Equitable engagement in our working groups is essential for our collective success and we welcome all volunteers to join us. Please contact email@example.com if you or your organization/business is interested in getting involved.
We have developed and approved a strategic plan for the next three years for the the DCFPC. You can read it online here: Approved Strategic Plan Feb 2017
