Announcement Date: December 3, 2010
The Task Force meets together for the first time. Task Force members looked at large sheets of butcher block paper with following categories: Education, Storage/Distribution, USDA/CDE State and Federal Regulators, Safety and Sanitation, Funding and Costs, Equipment/Facilities, Labor, Local Food Sourcing, Other. Task Force members added issues which they thought were significant under each category. They then used 5 green dots to prioritize the top issues. This served as the first round of identifying who was doing what and what needed to get done.
