The Food Security work group aims to fulfill MFC's vision of increasing access to healthy food for all. The focus thus far has been on increasing access through food recovery. In the near future, the Food Security work group plans to identify additional ways of addressing the high rates of food insecurity in our region.
The Food Security work group aims to:
increase access to healthy food for all;
increase awareness about food insecurity in our communities;
include food insecure individuals in our planning to ensure that their needs are being addressed;
and act as a brainstorming group which facilitates problem solving and support projects and/or programs that address food insecurity issues in our region.
The Food Security work group currently meets from 9:30-10:30 on the third Thursday of the month at Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick. If you are interested in being involved with the Food Security group, please email email@example.com.
FOOD ACCESS GUIDES
We are creating food access guides for each of our 14 communities that will be posted here and can be downloaded and distributed by our any community partner. Please check back in Spring 2019 for these guides or contact us.
