Food Policy Council sponsors meet mayoral candidates at Food Day


Savannah/Chatham Food Policy Council (SCFPC) will be hosting a meet and greet with the Savannah Mayoral Candidates at this year’s Food Day on Oct. 24. The festival will be held at Daffin Park and begins at 11 a.m.

Candidates will be located at the SCFPC Tent and have 30 minutes to meet the voters and field questions about issues for the upcoming election. Mayor Edna Jackson will appear at 1 p.m., Murray Silver at 2 p.m., and Eddie Deloach at 3 p.m. An appearance by Louis Wilson has not been confirmed.

This event allows the wider community access to the candidates in a relaxed setting and the opportunity for those who could not attend the Mayoral Debate held at Armstrong last week to have their concerns heard.

Food Day is a large, free outdoor festival for the public featuring live music from Savannah’s top musicians. Families and friends are encouraged to spend the day enjoying the music and browsing over 100 vendors and exhibitors. Attendees can also take part in free workshops and cooking classes, suitable for all ages.

The SCFPC’s mission involves coordinating and communicating efforts that support and promote equitable access and sustainable production of healthy local food.
