Join Us: Portland Food Council Launch

We are excited to be joining with 14 other local organizations and individuals to start the Portland Food Council.

This council will bring together Portland’s food community, and connect it to local government. We will work together to make values-based food policy that will make our community a more vibrant and sustainable place.

We hope you’ll join us on Monday, January 30th at Fork Food Lab to help celebrate the launch of the Council. Come hear from supporters, learn about how to get involved, and enjoy local snacks + cash bar.

4:00pm: Press Conference featuring remarks from Mayor Ethan Strimling, Mr. Justin Alfond and Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (via video)

4:30pm – 7:00pm: time to enjoy tasty local food, interact with folks currently involved in the council, and share what you’re excited about in Portland’s food system.

The Portland Food Council will work to shape food policy that will create resilience, sustainability, and vibrancy in the food system that supports Portland, Maine. Your input is important! Join us at the launch event to show your support.
