This year, Community Food Strategies began hosting quarterly networking calls for food councils in the Triad area.  This event is one of those quarterly networking opportunities.  Our summer networking conversation will be occurring in person, thanks to the hosting of Piedmont Triad Regional Council.

At this meeting we will hear from your neighboring councils, contribute to a Piedmont Triad Community Food Assessment, and explore regional collaborations that will further advance a vibrant community-based food system.

Please RSVP by Monday, July 3rd.
