Would you support city policies that support increased growth, sales, distribution, and consumption of healthy, locally grown foods for all Minneapolis residents? Should the city create the necessary internal structure to support these efforts?
Homegrown Minneapolis is an initiative to develop recommendations for the City of Minneapolis to improve sales, distribution and consumption of fresh, locally grown foods to positively impact the health, food security, economy and environment of our City and the surrounding region.
Since December 2008, Homegrown Minneapolis has been working to develop specific recommendations for ways in which the City can assist in these efforts. The draft of these recommendations is now available for review and they have invited your feedback.
Your comments, along with stakeholder comments and comments from the community at two public meetings, will be used to further develop their final recommendations report before they present them to the Mayor and City Council in June 2009.
You can submit your feedback using their “Contact Us” page.
