CMFPC Board Application
Thank you for applying to be a board member. Together we can build a better food system.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Food Policy Council exists to advocate for policies that build a sustainable, equitable and healthy local food system. The goals of our council are to enhance the health of our citizens, strengthen local economies and market opportunities, and reduce hunger and food insecurity.
Board members typically serve for three years with the option to extend their service for another three year term.

Why are you interested in serving on the board of the food policy council?
What areas of expertise would best serve you on our board? Do you have any special skills or areas of interest that would benefit our organization?
Are you currently involved in other food related organizations - either through work or as a volunteer? Please describe.
The CMFPC Board of Directors is a working board. Can you contribute 5 to 10 hours a month for meetings and events? To get a sense for the commitment ... We have one monthly board meeting - approximately 90 minutes. We meet twice a year as a board for a January and June retreat - each retreat is approximately 4-5 hours. We have quarterly members' events - attendance is not required, but encouraged. Individual committees meet separately throughout the month.
Do you know any current or former CMFPC board members or employees? If so, list them.
Have you served on other non-profit boards? If so, please list them and any offices you have held.
Are you currently a CMFPC member?
Donations: As with any Board, members will be solicited for a cash or in-kind donation; 100% participation is sought; the amount is optional but we ask that board members consider giving at a sustaining membership level of $25 a month. Board members should maintain an active membership status during their term. Do you foresee that as a problem?
