Event description

Description

The Alaska Food Conference and Festival is an opportunity for attendees to learn more about -- and engage in -- the various issues affecting Alaska’s food system. In our 4th semi-annual event, March 8th (Friday) will be a food systems conference with speakers presenting on a variety of food security, production, business, and community issues, with some sessions placing an emphasis on farmers markets. A separate reception for the event will be held following Friday’s sessions.

March 9th (Saturday), will be a fun and educational food festival, which will include a Keynote speaker to kick it off at mid-day, followed by Alaska food vendors, chef demonstrations, taste testing, food demonstrations, silent auction, and DIY workshops.

The goals of the conference and festival are to:

· increase awareness of Alaska food issues among the general population;
· provide training, resources, and networking opportunities to increase involvement in local food issues by community members and decision makers; and
· increase connections and build community between the public, Alaska food businesses, NGOs, governmental entities, Tribal entities, and others to support local economic development and innovative solutions.


Like last year, the conference and festival will have four focus areas:

1. Food Production & Harvesting

2. Community Building & Traditions

3. Food Insecurity

4. Food Business
