A key recommendation for implementing the Community Food Plan is to create a Food Policy Council in Everett that reflects the diversity of Everett, made up of residents and community members committed to food justice and racial equity. The Food Policy Council will prioritize the action steps included in the Food Plan and establish a timeline for implementation. Stay tuned for more news about the Food Policy Council and how you can get involved!
