The City of Minneapolis is developing a Minneapolis Food Action Plan (MFAP). The plan will be aligned with the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact and provide a roadmap toward a more equitable, climate resilient, just and sustainable local food system and local food economy.
Share your input in person at Food Council meetings focused on specific MFAP topic areas. RSVP encouraged but not required. We will also provide additional opportunities to share input for those unavailable to attend.
The meeting on July 24 will focus on discussions surrounding the topic of Diets & Community Demand (see definition below). Missed the Topic 1 discussion about Food Justice and Equity? Provide your input online.
Topic 2: Diets & Community Demand
All food consumed and used city-wide, including food eaten by residents both in and outside the home (with attention to individual diets shaping this demand); by visitors to the city and by industrial food processors (processing food for both local consumption & export)
