Food Policy Council Established

By Sheila AshLouisville Mayor Jerry Abramson and public health and wellness officials have announced the creation of a Food Policy Advisory Council. The Council is part of the Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Movement and will help oversee efforts to create healthier food opportunities in Louisville. A nearly $8 million federal grant was awarded to the city this year to help fund those efforts.Abramson says the application process has begun to seat the council, which will have at least 15 members. "A diverse group of people from across the community all focused on encouraging a robust, sustainable local food economy and a healthier population," he said. A development committee will review applications and then make recommendations to Mayor-elect Greg Fischer.Anyone interested in serving on the council should apply by December 24.More information is available here.
