What is the Milwaukee Food Council?
Milwaukee Food System Events
The Food Council, which began meeting in May 2007 as an ad hoc group concerned about the food system, continues to gather on a regular basis to develop intentional, positive strategies for a healthy, affordable, equitable food system that nourishes our community and respects the environment.
