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!  😉
