Cass Clay Food Commission

The Cass Clay Food Commission meets bi-monthly and is tasked with identifying ways to improve access to safe, nutritious, affordable, and culturally-based food for residents in the Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area. Efforts take into account different practices and infrastructure involved in food including growing, harvesting, processing, packaging, transporting, marketing, eating, and disposal/waste. Members of the public are encouraged to attend meetings to share their ideas, thoughts, and/or concerns related to improving/strengthening the local food system.
