We are at the table! Farm 2 Family participating in State food system roundtable

Brenda-Wiest.jpgBrenda Wiest, from Teamsters 117 and Farm to Family has been asked to sit at the Washington State Food System Roundtable. 

The Roundtable was created by Governor Gregoire to examine state food policy, food-related programs, and food-related issues.  The Roundtable’s work is guided by a set of Values and Principles and its mission is to create a 25-year vision for our state’s food system. Governor Inslee has continued the State’s commitment to the effort.

“I am excited to be a part of this important project.  Farm to Family shares many of the values the Food System Roundtable seeks to set as statewide policies.  Making our food system sustainable, promoting social justice and health equity, eliminating food insecurity, assuring a safe, healthy, secure, affordable food for everyone are core to the missions of both organizations.”

Wiest joins UFCW 367, another Farm to Family stakeholder, at the table.
