State Senator Anne Gobi, Co-Chair of the Joint Committee on the Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture, has been appointed by Senate President Stanley Rosenberg to the Food  Policy Council. Her appointment to the Council is effective immediately. 

“I am honored and thrilled to be appointed to the Food Policy Council. I look forward to the opportunity to support farmers throughout the Commonwealth and to increase access to locally-grown and locally-made foods,” said Senator Gobi.

The Food Policy Council is a 17 member council comprised of state legislators, members of executive agencies, and representatives of the food production industry. 

The purpose of the Council is to promote the production and consumption of healthy, Massachusetts grown food and to ensure the economic and environmental sustainability of local food production. 

“Senator Gobi’s advocacy for local farmers and local food cannot be understated and I am pleased to appoint her to the Food Policy Council. She understands the issues facing Massachusetts farmers, the importance of locally sourced food, and will bring an extensive breadth of knowledge to this position,” said Senate President Stan Rosenberg.

The next public meeting of the Council will take place on Thursday, March 10.
