Ask and Expert
One of the ways that the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Food Policy Council works to facilitate conversations about food system work is through our monthly member events. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, these events have been online and recorded. In these “Ask an Expert” interviews, we invite local food system experts in to discuss their work and its challenges, specifically relating to COVID-19, as well as any other relevant information or resources to share with the community.
