ICFAC would like to announce a new addition to the food team! Katherine Boyles is the new Food Policy & Program Coordinator for the City of Indianapolis, Community Nutrition & Food Policy Division. She has been working to strengthen Indianapolis’ local food system for over a decade, beginning when she joined the founding board of Indy Food Co-op/Pogue’s Run Grocer. She was an originator of the Indy Local Food Guide, which she helped produce for 7 years. She worked with Purdue Extension-Marion County’s Urban Agriculture Educator to design and launch the Urban Agriculture Certificate Program.
