I don't know anything about this but I imagine these centers could be located near major transportation routes to be able to get the food into distribution centers?
Anne Loftfield

Why are they specifying frozen vegetables when the other programs specify fresh?
AzFBN- Angie Rodgers
32:20
@Anne, was that the request of the schools?
Rodney Machokoto, Salt River GrowOp/Edenic Gardens
32:52
From other meetings, my understanding is that it's fresh not frozen.

Ease of preparation probably, but not for better nutrition.

It seems like the USDA is finally trying to engage small farmers but applying involves pounding a square stake into a round hole! Please encourage any farmers you encounter to start applying. If they get no interest the programs will go away. It's a lot of work but they can help with funding for good things.

Will workgroup meetings be recorded? And will they always be on Tuesdays/Thursdays in the future? I'm a part of Pima County Food Alliance and a few of our members are unable to attend on those days at that time.
