Partners of the 30 Mile Meal represent the entities that work as administrators for the 30 Mile Meal, keeping it functional, up to date, and local. The Licking County 30 Mile Meal is a project of the Licking County Local Food Council.
Who is the Licking County Local Food Council?
The Licking County Local Food Council’s mission is to promote locally produced foods and sustainable agricultural systems that benefit our health, our land, and our community. With members representing food producers, processors, distributors, local governments, schools, universities, business owners, not-for-profit organizations involved in local-food advocacy, health professionals, hunger advocates, and concerned citizens, the Licking County Local Food Council (LCLFC) holds meetings and hosts events in order to further the conversation around local food within Licking County and to facilitate connections between players in the local food system.
Feel free to print and distribute informational cards about the LCLFC by clicking here: 30MM Postcard (Updated February 2014) Please note that the card is to be printed front and back!
Who leads the project?
