Discussion Initiated by Councilman Alexander on Next Steps with Food Well Alliance in Hapeville
In February of 2019, The City of Hapeville hosted a Local Food Forum in cooperation with the Food Well Alliance and the Atlanta Regional Commission. Food Forums were also hosted in the cities of Alpharetta, Clarkston, Lawrenceville, Lovejoy, Pine Lake, and East Point. While Hapeville was a strong contender, the City of East Point was selected as the Food Well Alliance pilot city to develop a City Agriculture Plan. As a valued participant, the City of Hapeville will receive support from Food Well Alliance to catalyze their own urban agriculture initiatives and would like to receive input from local stakeholders to develop local food initiatives.
