The next meeting of the Local Food Policy Council will be Tuesday June 12, 2007 at 7:00 pm at Adams-Brown Unit office of University of Illinois Extension, 330 South 36th Street, Quincy, IL.
Minutes from the last two meetings can be obtained from the Adams-Brown Unit's web site at http://web.extension.uiuc.edu/adamsbrown/localgrown/downloads.html
Please join us as we have quite a few items to discuss at this next meeting. We hope to develop an organizational process where we can maximize the time and interest of all of those participating. We will hear an update about the community food assessment and we will identify those projects that we can work on NOW that will allow us to positively impact our local food system.
A teleconferencing system has been set-up for those who are interested. Please contact Brenda at 217-223-8380 or email at email@example.com for specifics about using this system. Hope to see everyone there.
