The Montgomery County Food Council is currently creating a comprehensive “Food Literacy Resource Guide” which will more effectively connect County residents who seek to improve their culinary skills and/or knowledge of nutrition, agriculture and food safety, with the local organizations that provide those services. In addition, we hope this assessment will also strengthen collaboration and resource sharing among the organizations providing food literacy services in the County. The basic information collected on this form will be transformed into a searchable database, print resources, and, possibly, an interactive map and app, for the use of all who access, give referrals to, or provide these services.
Following the creation of the Directory, in Fall 2017 we will continue our efforts by hosting a series of listening sessions with providers and local residents to identify existing barriers to providing and accessing food education in the community and brainstorm strategies and resources needed to overcome these challenges.
