The Communications & Outreach Subcommittee releases a bimonthly newsletter complete with FPAC subcommittee updates and information about news and events that FPAC supporters might be interested in.

2. Join Us on Social Media

Find us on Facebook and on Twitter @PhillyFPAC for council updates, food justice news, partner events, and more.

3. Attend a General Meeting or Executive Session

FPAC hosts general meetings 6 times a year on the first Wednesday in February, April, June, August, October, and December from 3pm to 5pm. In the first hour, you will hear updates from each of the FPAC subcommittees. The second hour is usually dedicated to a presentation or training about various topics and tools.

FPAC’s executive sessions take place on the first Wednesday of the general meeting “off months.” These meetings, which are not required for FPAC members, provide space for a deeper dive into FPAC-related issues.

To receive a reminder about upcoming FPAC meetings, join our mailing list.

FPAC currently operates 6 subcommittees that work on FPAC projects and drive the Council’s work forward. Subcommittees usually meet monthly, alternating between in-person meetings and conference calls.
