Science for Georgia has been working with several folks including, Senator Harold Jones (D-Augusta) and Kwabena Nkromo. On Jan 18th we met GA’s Commissioner of Agriculture, Gary Black.
Commissioner Black is very interested in improving food security. We discussed what Sen Jones’s study committee and what Science for Georgia’s roundtable learned. Everyone is keen on increasing access to nutritious food for more Georgians. As one of the nation’s largest fresh produce producers, we can and should be able to get more Georgia produce into more Georgia bellies.
Based on our discussion we then met with Dept. of Agriculture employees about how we can work together to get more information and food to the people of Georgia. These efforts are ongoing and we look forward to making more progress!
