Meet our Council Members

Central Kootenay Food Policy Council members represent communities, business, food-related sectors, non-profits, and local governments across the Central Kootenay, ensuring that there is a constant, two-way flow of information that guides our work and helps to determine our priorities. We explore issues related to hunger, food waste, land and water, distribution and production.
