Dec 7th, 2:00pm-4:30pm, Annual KCFC Membership Meeting


Kansas City Food Circle Annual Membership Meeting

Sunday, December 7, 2008 at KCMO- South Library, 201 E. 75th St

Meeting Room A, 2:00 – 4:30 PM.


The KCFC has been offered a grant to promote CSA's and organic farmers markets. We will explain what this involves for our organization. Then we will take input & suggestions on issues such as how to attract more CSA farmers or encourage more production by existing farmers to reduce the waiting list of eaters wishing to participate, and how to promote both our organic farmers markets and our producer-members who sell at other markets.

Next, Steve Mann, who coordinates the Squash Blossom Local Food Buying Club, will explain what produce is available locally during the off-season and how people can go together to bulk order processed food items in the region.

Finally we will review how things went in 2008 and discuss how we can make more progress in promoting local organic and free range food in what will be a very challenging economic environment in 2009.

All members and friends are welcome to attend. Admission is free. The room will be open at 1:30 PM.
