DFFN Task Force

Durham Farm & Food Network
Task Force

The Durham Farm and Food Network Task Force worked for about fifteen months to develop a food council and a network of committed individuals and organizations who want to work together to collaboratively improve Durham’s community food system. The work of this Task Force ended in January 2016 with the Kick-Off event for DFFN and the formation of the food council.

The Task Force was facilitated by Megan Bolejack from Care Share Health Alliance. Many thanks to Megan for her helpful guidance during this important time of planning for the food council.
