CJFMW SHIP Food Policy Council on it's way!

On Tuesday, April 17, thirty people from across Cottonwood, Jackson, Faribault, Martin and Watonwan Counties came together with a similar goal in mind- to discuss the food environment in their area. Audrey Arner (Moonstone Farms, Montevideo) facilitated the gathering which included discussions of all avenues of food (production, growing, processing, waste, health, etc.). At the end of the meeting, ten areas were identified as priority areas and a new Food Policy Council is currently being formed to work on these areas. A few of the areas identified include farm to school, farm to cafeteria, composting and healthy food avenues.
