You're Invited to Join our Working Groups!
The steering committee’s primary focus recently has been launching four working groups and asking for participation from across the region. The four groups are listed below, and you can find out more about their purpose here.
We will kick off each group with a conference call in the near future. If you are interested to join one of the groups, there is still time! Please indicate your interest by using this form.
We are particularly interested in identifying food service staff, producers (farmers, fishermen, processors, etc.), and students to participate. Please email [email protected] with any questions or ideas.
