This will be a time for local food leaders from across the state to select an MFEI project to initiate within their individual communities, and join the network of communities working towards better Montana food systems.
What to expect at MFEI Community Launch:
Community members, known as local food leaders, are invited to complete a project from Dec 2020- May 2021. MFEI projects bring together community members to collaborate across food system sectors, foster new relationships and partnerships, experience the benefits of diversity, and lead Montana communities to more equitable and resilient food systems.
Upon completion, each project team will create a 5-min video (digital story) to share their project with other communities. Through coalition-building you will develop more and better cross-sector food system relationships. Each team is part of the MFEI Network of local food leaders and project participants, who share experiences at the closing MFEI network meeting in May 2021. Ultimately, each project improves your community food system’s resilience.
