Next Innovation Kitchen presentation Feb. 3. USDA / Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
This is from the conference information sheet:
The Many Faces of Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food, hosted by USDA’s Illinois Rural Development & Food & Nutrition Service Midwest Region, offers organizations, state and federal agencies, institutions and others involved with agriculture an opportunity to learn about successful models, resources, strategies and opportunities for supporting, cultivating and growing local/regional food systems in the Midwest, including learning about available support from USDA agencies.
Please join USDA Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan and local, state and federal government, business, and not for profit organizations from 12 states in America’s heartland to learn about successful models and opportunities in the local food system arena.
This looks like a great conference. I'm looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new ones!
