S3 is honored to welcome Seattle City Council President Richard Conlin to our meeting in January! Councilmember Conlin will discuss the Local Food Action Initiative, which was adopted by Seattle City Council in April 2008. Simply put, "This resolution brings together the critical issues around food to create a framework for food policy for Seattle government".
After Councilmember Conlin provides an overview of the initiative, there will be a question and answer period, followed by a discussion about how S3 can promote smart choices in all aspects of our food system - from where and how our food is produced, how it's packaged and transported, to its place on your table…
We will also hear from Diana Vinh, who will give an update on a project to increase urban and community gardening opportunities in the south end.
Please join us:
