Task Force Kick-off Meeting

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.
