Food and Nutrition

System Issue

Disinvestment in neighborhood resources, globalization of food chains, and inadequate wages have left people unable to afford fresh foods.

Committee Vision

We envision a system where farm and food businesses balance the wellbeing of employees, community, and environment; all people in Kent County are food secure with access to culturally appropriate, local foods.


We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 8:30-10:00 am. Our meetings are open to anyone who wants to participate.
