Other Great Ideas & Suggestions

This is an opportunity to create new committees that drive the passion in your heart. Some ideas we'd be happy to help foster:  School Lunch Program to improve how kids eat, Vegetarian  Advocacy Committee to promote Meatless Monday. Also, Slow Meat, Slow Fish and Slow Wine committees have much potential to help spread the word of food sustainability. Have another idea? Feel free to come to a monthly meeting and share your good suggestions.
