Councilmembers Introduce Bill to End “Food Insecurity” (VIDEO)
A bill that would require a strategic plan to end “food insecurity” in Montgomery County was introduced last month before the County Council. Council Vice President Roger Berliner is the lead sponsor of Bill 19-16 and Councilmembers George Leventhal and Craig Rice are the co-sponsors. All three Councilmembers also are members of the Council’s Health and Human Services Committee, which oversees funding for programs that address food insecurity.

A public hearing on the bill is tentatively scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on June 14. Funding for the strategic plan is expected to be discussed by the Council in the coming weeks as part of its overall Fiscal Year 2017 Operating Budget deliberations.
