Coalition Aiming To Link WV Farms and Consumers
Strengthening the link between people who produce food and people who consume it is the focus of a forum in Berkeley Springs.
The West Virginia Food and Farm Coalition and the West Virginia University Extension Service are organizing a regional roundtable discussion at the Panorama at the Peak restaurant.
Organizer Savanna Lyons tells The Journal of Martinsburg the idea is to keep farms viable and food affordable.
Meetings in Clarksburg were tough for everyone to attend, so a series of regional meetings is being held instead.
Past discussions have tackled issues such as how to improve school and hospital food, and regulatory concerns. This fall, Lyons says working groups will tackle the top five issues identified in the regional meetings.
