If you have ever wondered…

§  How can I get the attention of candidates and other policymakers?

§  What do candidates want to hear? How can I be prepared?

§  Who in my local community should I talk to about food policies?

….then this webinar is for you!


Following up on the “Your Guide to the Michigan Good Food Charter” webinar in July, this webinar will discuss how to take the goals and agenda priorities in the Michigan Good Food Charter to candidates and policymakers.
