WVFFC staff spent a good bit of time at the Capitol this month. It has been an exciting session for local food!
With help from the Hub's Director of Community Engagement and Policy, Stephanie Tyree, we met with numerous legislators, talked at length with Commissioner Walt Helmick, and organized the WVFFC-supported Meat Processing Working Group to speak with decision-makers. It is encouraging to see how much support for local food is brewing at the Capitol. As the legislature starts to wrap up, here's an update on what has taken place.
