Have you ever wondered what else our food system could look like? Or, maybe you’re working to make a new food system. If so, we’d love to have you at the 2019 Community Food System Conference.
The 2019 Community Food Systems Conference will be hosted in Savannah, Georgia by New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and Georgia Farmers Market Association, December 9-11, 2019. We’re excited to announce author and James Beard Award recipient Michael Twitty will join us as the Conference key note speaker and many other food system champions as panelists and workshop leaders. Check back soon for more information and updates.
The 2019 Community Food Systems Conference will address common underlying themes of food security, social justice and sustainable agriculture across urban and rural environments and foster community empowerment to create resilient and equitable local food systems. We will convene in Savannah, Georgia to highlight and learn about food systems in the U.S.South while also drawing parallels to food systems across the country.
The conference is hosted by New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and Georgia Farmer's Market Association (GFMA). The partners will build on the momentum of the 2017 Community Food Systems Conference and GFMA’s Food for Thought Conference.
