Join us for Celebrating Connectivity & Creativity, a 2020 food council celebration.
2020 has been full of surprises, loss, action and inaction, as well as creativity and partnership.
Amidst the pandemic, you continued to meet and organize; you challenged elected officials; you created new partnerships; you supported local farmers, food businesses and food industry workers; and you served your community needs.
You all are showing up for your families and communities even more than before.
This event honors and celebrates all that you are doing. Check out some highlights!
