The evening will be a mixture of story-telling, networking and regional goal-setting. Attending this event will be a great way to learn about what is happening across the region, and to interact with other folks who share your same passions around food, health and agriculture. We hope you all can attend!
Please RSVP here. You will get the most benefit out of the event if you can come with at least 2-3 people from your community.

This event is one of six regional gatherings that are being held across the state by Community Food Strategies and the Local Food Council of North Carolina. Members of the state food council will be in attendance to talk about their work, as well as to listen and speak with you about what is happening in the Charlotte region’s community food systems.
A few weeks ago, one of these gatherings was held in Asheville in partnership with the Western Regional Foodshed Summit. Community members and food council members came together for a similar day of networking and learning. Read a summary of that day here.
