2017 Statewide Food Council Gathering

We’re thrilled to announce we will be hosting a Statewide Food Council Gathering in collaboration with the state level Local Food Council of North Carolina and several local food councils.   At this two-day conference, food councils will share experiences, sharpen their skills, and advance regional collaborations.  The Gathering will feature food system experts, many breakout sessions, and structured networking.

Many more details will be coming in the next few months, and for now here’s the skinny.

WHEN:   Thursday, November 30, 10:00am – 6:30pm to Friday, December 1, 8:30am – 3:00pm

WHERE: WinMock, Bermuda Run, NC in Davie County

  • We will be reserving a block of hotel rooms at Hampton Inn.   Shuttle service to and from WinMock will be available.

WHO: All existing and emerging food council leaders, members, and partners

REGISTRATION: Expect registration to open in late August.

Community Food Strategies will be sponsoring up to two people from each food council to attend, which will include registration, travel for one vehicle, and one hotel room.
