Food Council

Add Your Voice to the
Guilford Food Council

Guilford County is putting together a Food Council. The Guilford Food Council (GFC) supports the development of a vibrant, sustainable, and healthy local food system for Guilford County and its cities, municipalities, and rural areas. Members of the GFC serve to examine the food system in Guilford County, bring together stakeholders from the many food-related sectors, and create a successful local food system that promotes vibrant farmsthriving economies, and healthy neighborhoods.     Short notice, but tonight there is an open community forum starting at 6 pm at the IRC Center, 407 East Washington Street, Greensboro.  I hope that you will consider coming and offering your thoughts on how we can make our local food system stronger.
