The Food Security PST (Priority Strategy Team) is tasked with implementing "Priority Strategy 24: Develop a Vermont food security plan, centered around a thriving food system and inspired by community-based responses to food insecurity and disruptive events". The plan will advance long-term, equitable, food security and food access by all of Vermont’s residents not only today but in times of crisis, regardless of their life circumstances.

January 2023: Do you want to help draft the Plan? You may want to join a Topic Writing Team. Read more about  the roles and tasks of Topic Writing Teams here. Apply to be part of a Topic Team with a simple application here, by February 15.
