Public meetings set on ways to make locally grown produce more available

Homegrown Minneapolis is a City initiative that’s working to find more ways to get fresh, locally grown food sold, distributed and eaten in Minneapolis. Help City officials improve on the recommendations by voicing your opinions at two public meetings being hosted by the City of Minneapolis in May. Food grown locally is good for your health and promotes a stronger local economy and protection of our environment.

Residents can come to a meeting, hear about the Homegrown Minneapolis initiative, review a summary of the Homegrown Minneapolis recommendations, and share their comments.

Monday, May 18
