A Bursting Food Community – Network Meeting Summary Feb. 7

Due to sketchy winter driving conditions, Emily Jubenvill’s presentation was re-scheduled for our April 4 Network Meeting. With this change in plans, it provided the space for Network members to share about the good work they are doing. It was remarkable and inspiring to hear about all that is happening in the Kamloops region.

There was a particular focus on volunteer needs in the community (see the Get Involved section below), as well as an array of events and announcements.

Board Update

The KFPC is looking to increase the number of Directors from six so that capacity is expanded to keep up with the growth of KFPC. There is a nomination process that involves an application form which will be available on the website soon. The Board meets monthly with the expectation that Board Directors attend at least four Network Meetings per year. There is also a need to stay on top of communications and participate in committee(s) and working group(s). Board Directors can expect to spend 8 – 10 hours per month on Board duties.

Those with experience in policy development, entrepreneurial skills, or direct farm experience would be most welcome so that there is a broader representation from the food system community.
