In recent years, food councils in North Carolina have hosted candidates forums with key policy makers to both educate them on their communities’ food system needs and to connect citizens directly with their law makers. Join members of the Community Food Strategies team as we walk you through the steps outlined in our Candidates Forum Toolkit that explain how to successfully organize a candidates forum. Based on our own work with food councils and policy makers, we will share tips on candidates forum planning, logistics, and promotion. Participants will leave with the tools and confidence to organize their very own candidates forums in their communities.
