Join CFSA Executive Director Roland McReynolds at The Watauga Co. Cooperative Extension Office in Boone, NC, on Saturday, July 6th from 12:30 - 2:00pm to learn about the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). FSMA's proposed rules apply to vegetable growers, value-added processors and wholesale markets, and will dramatically affect local food availability for consumers. After the event we will provide a handout with detailed directions on how to comment through the FDA website, so you can go home and describe a specific way the proposed rules will affect you. This is part of a concerted effort all over the country with sister organizations and friends of local agriculture.
Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend; space is limited.
