Outreach Committee – Beth McKellips
4:55-5:15 p.m. What is SGFN? – Discussion

Outreach Committee revisited the mission/values/goals of SGFN – are they still the same or have they changed?

Three main goals:
  • Support relevant policy when it comes up
  • Network
  • Act as a conduit for information

Does our current meeting structure/format meet our needs?   Or is there something that would better suit the organization based on the needs expressed by its members?

Outreach Committee – Sharon Lerman
5:15 – 5:30 p.m. Potential Merger with Urban Farm Hub – Discussion and possible vote
  • The Seattle Good Food Network needs a new online tool to replace the Google Group page to publicly post meeting updates and notes, action items, and calendar items for the network.
  • Urban Farm Hub is an established online news and information source for urban agriculture and food policy in the Puget Sound, which already has the traffic and the capacity for hosting public documents such as meeting notes and maintaining a comprehensive calendar.
  • The Outreach Committee proposes that the Seattle Good Food Network partner with Urban Farm Hub as a way to use and strengthen an already established urban agriculture resource, maintain a public record of meeting activity and actions, and support the content and function of Urban Farm Hub through a future network sub-committee.
