RI Food Policy Council Meeting

Tuesday, November 17 | 5:30PM - 7:00PM | Kingston, RI | directions

The Rhode Island Food Policy Council sees an enormous window of opportunity for purposeful change in the food system in Rhode Island in the year ahead, and RIFPC Work Groups perform core work of the Council by engaging stakeholders and facilitating improvements that strengthen Rhode Island’s local food system.

Environment Working Group
Rhode Island’s food system will cultivate a healthy environment by striving for zero waste, adopting ecologically sound practices, and ensuring healthy working conditions.

Join us for a community conversation about composting.

Why now? DEM will soon be issuing new composting regulations, a timely move since our only RI landfill needs us to send more of our food waste to composting facilities.

Interested in getting involved? Want to make your voice heard? Attend this meeting to learn more. Bring your thoughts and ideas to the table.

Hosted by URI Extension Outreach Center at the URI Greenhouses, Room 123: 6 Greenhouse Road, Kingston, RI.

Contact Vanessa Garcia at (401) 874-2900 or by e-mail for more information.
