Nashua Food Council
March 26, 2018
10:00 - 11:00 AM
Grow Nashua provides a backbone for communication among Nashua’s diverse organizations, schools, and residents to support the local food system and positively impact the overall health of the community. This leadership has led to the creation of Nashua Food Council (NFC). The mission of the food council addresses three strategies, improving distribution and production of healthy culturally appropriate foods, providing nutrition education, and using the collective impact model to create and support NFC.
Join Justin Munroe from Grow Nashua to learn about the work he is doing as a resource and a partner in providing space, fostering neighborhood activities, and hosting nutrition education through collaboration with schools, parks, hospitals, community organizations. Grow Nashua focuses on low-income and immigrant populations to help increase food security and strengthen community ties. Specifically, Justin will share details about why your community needs its own food council, where to find interested stakeholders, what areas could spark interest for those stakeholders, and the skills and resources helpful to facilitating the conversation. We hope you can join us on March 26!
