Event description

Description

Over time, food production has become an industry driven by economics instead of nutrition. We have become disengaged from the very food we put in our mouth. In this conference we will look at the disconnect that has developed between humans and their food. We will search for ways to become active participants in our food choices and reconnect to the sacred act of nourishing our bodies. In doing this, we will examine some aspects of the food industry: how food is grown, how we can access healthy, nutritious food, and how we can address the food waste dilemma. We are excited to welcome Mary Jo Forbord, farmer, registered dietitian and Coordinator of Morris Healthy Eating Initiative as our Keynote Speaker and panelists including:

  • Dan Guenther, Organic Farmer, Common Harvest Farm, Osceola, WI
  • Natasha Frost, Roots, Shoots and Boots, Mankato, MN
  • Kate Seybold, Coordinator, Farm to School Program Minneapolis Public Schools, Minneapolis, MN
  • Betty Winkworth & Jane Dow, Coordinators, Zero Waste, Mankato, MN

In hearing their thoughts and perspectives, we will look at the positive choices people in our local community are making. From local farmers to organizations focusing sustainable initatives we will be inspired to look at our personal relationship with food, our greatest resource.

Join us on the journey through our food chain in this great day of discussion, learning and practice.
