2014-15 Food Council Working Groups and Task Forces

Each year the Food Council identifies several working groups and task forces as priorities, informed by previous work and community input as well as emerging opportunities and concerns. Food Council meetings often include time for working groups to meet on a rotating basis. The community is welcome and encouraged to attend monthly Food Council meetings and participate in working group activities. Current 2015 working groups include:

During 2014, the Staple Foods Ordinance Task Force was instrumental to City Council approval of amendments to the Staple Foods Ordinance, which will increase the healthy food options available in licensed grocery stores. In addition, the Mobile Grocery Store Task Force successfully worked with the City Council on new mobile grocery store regulations, allowing mobile grocery stores to offer a bigger selection of healthy foods and operate in more locations than before. Additionally, the Animals working group worked with community and City partners to successfully remove the neighbors’ signature requirement from the honeybee ordinance.
