Meeting Minutes

Washington County

The Healthy Communities work was informed by and reported to the Board and Staff of the Healthy Maine Partnership: Washington County: One Community at their regular monthly Board meetings. Staff in Washington County (Judy East) also worked directly with Downeast Farm to School Coordinator Regina Grabrovac on Food System Planning and with Maine Sea Coast Mission Director of Service Programs Wendy Harrington on mapping the Food Pantry and Community Meal sites in Washington County. Work on Local Foods involved planning for and conducting five community meetings in the Spring of 2013, as well as multiple Washington County Food Summit planning/logistics meetings from Sept 2013 - March 2014. Finally multiple meetings, conference calls and google hangouts among WCCOG staff, the Staff and GIS students of the University of Maine at Machias GIS Service Center, and Zoe Keller of the Beehive Design Collective produced the Local Food in Washington County Celebratory Poster and the on-line Food System map; this work will continue with the Maine Food Data Consortium.
