Are you a local food enthusiast? Are you eager to help improve our local food system? If yes, there’s a new opportunity for you to get involved. The City of Minneapolis is looking for volunteers for the Homegrown Minneapolis Food Council for 2014-2016.

Two upcoming information sessions have been scheduled for potential applicants:

· Thursday, September 26th at 7 p.m.: St Olaf Community Campus, 2901 Emerson Ave. N., Minneapolis
