Launch of the McHenry County Local Food Assessment Report

February 6, 2014 | 10 - 11:30am

In October 2013, the McHenry County Board adopted recommendations to support the production and sale of local food in the county. The recommendations were developed by an Openlands-led task force and focused on several specific opportunities:

  • reducing policy barriers
  • building relationships and education on shared issues
  • increasing infrastructure to support a local food system
  • matching supply with demand
  • building local food branding and marketing

Please join us for the public launch of the McHenry County Local Food Assessment Report.
