Mayor Mike McGinn and the Seattle City Council invite you to participate in Our City, Our Food, Our Future: listening sessions on food in our community.

The City of Seattle envisions a just, sustainable, and resilient food system where:

  • All Seattleites have enough to eat and have access to affordable, local, healthy, culturally appropriate food. 
  • It is easy to sell local and healthy food in Seattle. 
  • It is easy to grow food in Seattle, whether for personal use or for business purposes.
  • The City provides sustainable ways to prevent and deal with food waste.
  • Our community is educated about eating local and healthy food.

We hope you or a designated representative are able to attend one of three public meetings (listed below) the Seattle Office of Sustainability & Environment is hosting to receive feedback on what the City should do next to meet these goals.

  • Tuesday March 13, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Ravenna Eckstein Community Center (6535 Ravenna Ave NE)
  • Friday March 16, 1:00-4:00 p.m.
  • City Hall, Bertha Knight Landes Room (600 4th Avenue)
  • Monday March 19, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Southside Commons (3518 S Edmunds Street)
