Health and Human Services Director Chris Webb is reaching out to Malden residents to fill the resident member opening on the Malden Food Policy Council. The newly formed Food Policy Council will work to prioritize the recommendations of the Malden Community Food Assessment and will create a Community Food Plan to ensure that all residents, especially historically marginalized populations, have access to culturally preferred, high quality, nutritious food. The Food Policy Council shall create a strategic plan with goals and objectives related to the local food system and develop a strategy and deadlines for implementing them.
Members of the five-member board will serve for a period of not more than three years. The meeting date, time, and frequency is yet to be determined and will be at an agreeable date and time for all members.
Residents may express their interest in being appointed to the Food Policy Council by filling out the form at cityofmalden.org/1026/FPC-Membership on the City of Malden website. This form will remain available until an appointment is made. The appointed candidate is subject to a CORI report.
