CDFA advisory panel's monthly meeting to be held May 3.

The drought and its impacts on labor, communities and drinking water systems will highlight a full agenda for the California Board of Food and Agriculture's monthly meeting on May 3.

The board, which advises the state Department of Food and Agriculture, will also hear from a representative of the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency and receive a presentation on Planting the Seed: Farm to School Roadmap for Success.

The 10 a.m. meeting will be held in the CDFA headquarters' main auditorium, 1220 N St., Sacramento, and will be streamed on Zoom. The passcode is: Board2022!

Invited speakers include: Secretary Natalie Palugyai, California Labor and Workforce Development Agency; Darrin Polhemus, State Water Resources Control Board; Marco Lizarraga, La Cooperativa Campesina de California; Nigel Bocanegra, California Farm Labor Contractors Association; Mona Shulman, Pacific Coast Producers; Arima Kozina, California Department of Food and Agriculture; Thea Rittenhouse, CDFA Farm Equity Advisor, Nicholas Anicich, CDFA Farm to School Coordinator and other invited speakers.

The board returned to in-person meetings in April at the University of California, Merced after two years of meeting virtually because of pandemic-related restrictions on public gatherings, but the panel still offers its meetings online.
