Calling all sustainable foodies! Mayor Nutter is working to jumpstart the economy and create more equitable neighborhoods by advancing a more sustainable food system in Philadelphia. To implement his vision, Mayor Nutter is establishing a Food Policy Advisory Council to guide the city in meeting the goals outlined in Greenworks Philadelphia for improved accessibility to local, affordable and nutritious food.
Members of the council will represent diverse sectors of the food and agricultural industry, community group leaders interested in sustainable and fresh food systems, and members from related City departments. Community members interested in serving can submit a cover letter and resume to Patrick Morgan of the Department of Parks and Recreation by Monday, June 28. For questions, please call 215-683-3652.
