Create collective impact for social change in our food system.
Five conditions that support this are:
Shared measurement systems
Mutually reinforcing activities
Convening and engaging community
A mutually agreed upon backbone support organization
Since August 2014, the Milwaukee Food Council has been working toward developing a common agenda to address food insecurity in Milwaukee, ensuring that ALL Milwaukee residents have geographic access to affordable and desirable food which tastes good and promotes positive health outcomes. In the fall of October 2014, we conducted a survey among our members and targeted community groups to gather information to help define and focus our priority efforts within the food system.
Since the summer of 2015, the Milwaukee Food Council has continued to work on its Strategic Planning document and aligning and refining those goals and metrics with the three priorities from the survey results: Affordability, Geographic Accessibility, and Desirability. We have now identified five Focus Areas and a working definition for food insecurity that is outlined in this three page summary:
We are seeking input and engagement to further define 1-2 goals with suggested activities/actions to move each of the focus areas forward.
Please complete the survey: (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeLHtfIGna2vejjWYInC6YYDQ9765loIniKOy4nwPIyoKYjtQ/viewform) to provide your input. Initial Focus Area planning groups will be convened in November 2016.
Thank you all for your support and participation in this initiative!
