The purpose of the regional meetings is to bring together those engaged in all aspects of the food system. We want to identify specific regional and local sustainable food systems models that are working and also regional challenges that can be addressed through policies, programs, and funding.
If you are a farmer, supplier, processor, economic development organizer, distributor, farm and food industry worker, extension or other educator, marketer, financial provider, University or community college, elected official, government agency worker, county and city planner, farm organization, anti-poverty organizer, social justice worker, consumer or consumer group, granting agency, health and wellness organization, environmental group, food bank, or other–join us!
Please note: These regional meetings are facilitated working sessions and you should come ready to provide vital input into this collaborative process.
