Food Commission

Metro COG provides staff support to the Cass Clay Food Commission. The Commission meets bi-monthly and is tasked with identifying ways to improve access to healthy, safe, local, and affordable 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/strengthing the local food system.

For more information, please visit the City of Fargo's Let's Eat Local website.

Cass Clay Food Commission Resources are documents developed by the Cass Clay Food Commission to assist local governments interested in addressing food system issues through policy and interventions. These resources include blueprints that look at food systems from a land development code perspective, and issue briefs and snapshots which highlight a food systems topic in the community.

Currently, Metro COG is working on completing the Metro Food Plan.
