Pittsboro, NC - Chatham County citizens are invited to join Chatham County Cooperative Extension, Chatham County Public Health Department and the Center for Environmental Farming Systems for a local food meeting on Tuesday morning, August 20 from 9 am-10:30am at the Chatham County Agricultural Building Auditorium (65 East Chatham Street, Pittsboro).

The agenda includes examining how we feed ourselves and how we might work together to support the local food economy. The purpose of the meeting is to examine the relevance of a food council in the county and to take initial steps towards developing a council as a formal entity. A local food council is a volunteer group made up of representatives from the different parts of the local foods system, including consumers, producers, processors, retailers and other stakeholders. Every food council organizes in its own unique way, but most focus on assessing the local food system, identifying and bridging gaps in the system, and developing key linkages in the region and across the state.
