Members needed for new Homegrown Minneapolis Food Council

The City of Minneapolis has recently created the Homegrown Minneapolis Food Council and needs applicants to serve on the council. Applicants may be people with experience working with one or more aspects of our food system or people who have strong interest in making the food system more healthy, sustainable and local.

The council will develop policies and advise elected leaders on ways to expand access to healthy, sustainable, and locally grown foods in Minneapolis. Along with improving how folks can grow food, council members will address other challenges, including processing, promotion, distribution, consumption and composting of healthy, sustainable, locally grown foods in Minneapolis.

The Homegrown Minneapolis Food Council will include community members and representatives from City government. Applicants should live or work in Minneapolis and have a passion for getting healthy, sustainable, locally grown produce in the hands and mouths of more people. Up to 14 community positions will be filled.

Applications are open from Oct. 3 to Oct. 21. Click on “current openings,” then download and complete the application.

Homegrown Minneapolis is a citywide initiative expanding our community’s ability to grow, process, distribute, eat and compost more healthy, sustainable, locally grown food. Healthy, sustainable, and locally grown food can positively impact the city’s and region’s health, economy, environment, food security and food safety while empowering families and communities to be more self-sufficient.
