Triad Food Network Gathering

SavetheDate_TriadGathering

We would like to invite all food council members and local food advocates to attend a free Regional Food Network Gathering for the Triad region on Monday, May 2nd.

This event will include program sharing, networking, and regional visioning for local farm and food initiatives in the Triad.  Attending this event will be a great way to learn about what is happening across the region, build new partnerships and connects, and help shape the Triad’s vision for healthy food, farms, and communities. We hope you all can attend!

We encourage you to come with at least 2-3 people from your community or county. Please forward this invitation as you feel appropriate.   Lunch will be catered by Providence Catering as part of Second Harvest Foodbank of Northwest NC.
Please RSVP here by April 28th.

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 better understand the Triad region’s community food system.  Review summaries of recent past regional food network events.
