Recent Dinner with School Food Program Organizers

Colorado Corn | 2017

Colorado Corn Executive Coordinator Ann Cross – who also serves as Colorado’s state facilitator for CommonGround – along with fellow CommonGround volunteers Sondra Pierce, Nikki Weathers and Colleen Peppler recently took part in dinner and discussions with school food program organizers.

The event was arranged by the Colorado Department of Agriculture, with representatives of Denver Public Schools and Greeley District 6 joining the CommonGround volunteers at the table.

CommonGround was founded by the National Corn Growers Association, the United Soybean Board and their state affiliates to help connect women in agriculture with dietitians, nutritionists, other food-industry influencers and the mothers buying food for their families, to have conversations about how food is produced.
