Local Food and Farms Day – Charleston
This Event is designed as a way to show the strength and vibrancy of the local food and agricultural sector in WV. We schedule legislative meetings for those who wish to speak with Senators and Delegates, our partners come to share about their projects, we host food system demos, and WV Cooks makes us breakfast! This year we will focus our efforts on acquiring a line item for the SNAP Stretch program in the WV Department of Agriculture’s budget along with other agriculture-based nutrition programs.
Anyone who works or volunteers in this sector is invited to attend! The Coalition will even schedule legislative meetings on your behalf if you’d like to attend one. If this seems intimidating, don’t worry! We do it in teams and make sure that you have an experienced team leader to guide you through the process. We will even host a legislative advocacy training webinar on Zoom, register here! https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0vd-yhrjstH9CbQ7YxZhThmjUPnQCfFLfh
