Event Details

This pre-conference workshop focuses on the concepts highlighted in MCEE’s Global Food Challenge curriculum: food trade, food security, and food safety.  

The morning will include sessions led by Professor Curt Anderson, University of Minnesota - Duluth, and Terry Hurley, University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, with guest speakers from Minnesota’s business and university community on global food supply, food security, and food safety. In the afternoon, we’ll take off in a bus to visit places like the St. Paul Port Authority or other Minnesota food transport gateways. The day ends with a group dinner.

Already familiar with the curriculum? The day still has plenty of new material for you – including the guest speakers, site visits, and release of the two newly written units on food security and food safety.

Registration includes all materials, continuing education units, and meals. Registration is $30 and participants receive an $80 participation stipend.

Travel scholarships, including hotel, are available for 35 individuals who reside outside the seven county Metro area (Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington) and Pierce and St. Croix counties. The travel scholarship consists of one $125 stipend to cover mileage and up to $100 per night (1 night) to cover hotel. Receipts are required for hotel reimbursement.

Agricultural Educators -- up to 12 travel scholarships are reserved just for you! Register by June 15 to be eligible for these scholarships.  To qualify, you must reside outside the seven county Metro area and Pierce and St. Croix counties. After June 15, we will release the remaining scholarships to other educators.
