Food and Nutrition

The ENTF Food and Nutrition Committee meets on the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 8:30-10:00. These meetings are open to anyone who seeks to participate in this conversation.

The work of this committee is seeking to accomplish the goal:

All Kent County residents are food secure and have access to food that is nutritionally diverse.
