The Wayne County Food Council (WCFC) is the reason this entire venture can happen.
In case you hadn’t heard of the WCFC, their mission is “To equip communities to provide healthy, affordable and nutritious food so that all Wayne County residents might have access regardless of economic means”. That’s a broad-reaching goal. But, remember, do not be limited by your dreams, and vision for the future, because without a vision, we cannot make steps to achieve those goals.
Officially, the WCFC “will work to develop collaborative partnerships and relationships to increase access to quality nutritious food: educate residents about how to better access and use nutritious food; and advocate for policies and systems that strengthen quality and equality in our local food system with the goal of improving lives and the hope of ending hunger in our communities.”
These quotes are direct citations from the WCFC Bylaws.
So, if you are a believer in this mission, and have a vision for a future where Wayne County residents can have a nourishing meal and not go hunger- please contact the WCFC. Your voice belongs at the table.
The last council meeting was yesterday, Monday, March 6th from 1-2pm at the Wayne County Fairgrounds, Kuhlman Center.
Thanks for a great meeting everyone! We had a great time!
Again. A super big thanks to the current leadership team Christian Penrod, Ted Chaulk, Eric Weiss and Alicia Cresswell.
Thanks for keeping up with our project. Today we’re discussing the brass taxes of our social venture. This includes nailing down profit revenue with numbers, our specific business model and partnership with Earlham Council.
