Working Groups

In support of the Council’s mission to strengthen the economic, environmental, cultural and social foundations of Colorado’s local and regional food systems, COFSAC members identify and lead issues-based working groups. Working group membership is open to non-council members. Please contact if you are interested in joining the efforts of one of the groups listed below.

Communications & Strategic Relations

This group works to establish clear, regular, and high-value channels of communication and consultation with lawmakers and state agencies.  

Membership and Engagement

This group works to identify and develop strategic partnerships with other food-system aligned initiatives, councils, institutions, organizations and stakeholders.  

Institutional Procurement

Colorado institutions allocate millions of taxpayer dollars each year to purchase food. In many cases, these institutions’ food purchasing practices are significantly impacted by state rules, regulations, and reporting requirements administered by state agencies. This working group researches and promotes existing and innovative local procurement policies, incentives, and data collection initiatives that can expand and improve the positive impact of public procurement from local food producers.
