Retreat and go forth
Each year, we hold a planning retreat to set course. Today, we welcomed 6 new members, and then broke into various sub-groups to do some planning. Here a few highlights:
Outreach and Public Relations: This group plans to bring you several events throughout the year, such as the movie night we co-hosted last fall at Las Milpitas, perhaps some food trivia. Whatever it is, we promise it will be fun or informative…hopefully both!
Policy: This group’s most immediate, and biggest task, is to support the passage of SB1245, the state bill that allocates $400,000 for expanding Double Up SNAP across the state. It’s fresh off the presses, and will move quickly. We promise to keep you posted.
Development: This group plans to put some sweet moolah in the coffers, which will be put to good use in expanding our impact. Also, on tap: developing our own skills as a leadership council, recruiting new members, etc.
Of course, the best part of any PCFA retreat is eating the delicious food put together by a bunch of fanatical foodies. What did we we eat??? Maybe you’ll just have to have to join the leadership council next year and find out! 😉
