Monthly Meeting Structure
The working group meets monthly from February to November. Until mid-summer, the group focuses on local food recovery initiatives and programs. From mid-summer until late October, the focus is on the annual Food Recovery Week, which is usually held during the second half of October and often highlights the work the subgroups have been doing. The group takes December and January off from meetings.

Monthly Meeting Times
Starting in 2019 we are attempting to be more accommodating to different schedules by trying a rotating monthly schedule.  We will be meeting once a month but at two different times depending on the month.  We will first meet the first Friday of the month, 3-5pm in February.  The next month (march) we will be meeting the first Thursday of the month at 6-8pm.  Then we will rotate between each day and time each month.  If there’s a holiday then we will reschedule through the google group email.  We meet from February to November and we take December and January off.

March 7th (Thursday) – 6-8pm
