This two-day event will offer opportunities for the general public, food professionals, entrepreneurs, job seekers, CSA members, community organizers and farmers to come together for two days of workshops and skill- building sessions. The conference will provide attendees with opportunities to learn about cooking and food preservation techniques, CSA trends, and local and national farm and food issues, as well as ways to mobilize communities in order to increase access to farm-fresh, locally grown food.On Friday from 5:30pm-7:30pm, Just Food and Good Food Jobs will co-host a Good Food Jobs networking event for conference participants and the job-seeking public. On Saturday, we’ll host an EXPO from 12pm-6:30pm featuring exemplary local food artisans, sustainable businesses, and organizations.
