Hosted in collaboration between Boulder Food Rescue , Denver Food Rescue and Colorado Springs Food Rescue.
2017 Forward Food Summit: April 1st
Mercury Cafe, 2199 California St. Denver, CO
This year's Forward Food Summit is brought to you in collaboration of Boulder Food Rescue, Denver Food Rescue and Colorado Springs Food Rescue. Together we are hosting the second collaborative front range Forward Food Summit, and the fourth Forward Food Summit ever.
This years un-conference is focused on Food and Traditional Knowledge
Our goals are to create an interactive space for everyone involved, to learn and engage with traditional knowledge and the idea of food as a central point for cultural storytelling. We want to both engage the audience with new ideas and to provide a space for individuals to network and facilitate potential collaborations between people working in the food justice field in the Front Range area.
All proceeds for this event will be split between the three front range organizations. These organizations work in their communities to provide healthy food access to those in need by redistributing healthy food that would otherwise be wasted and setting up no-cost grocery programs with communities to break down barriers to accessing food, by bicycle. These organizations are members of a peer learning network called the Food Rescue Alliance, that helps support individuals in starting food rescue programs and is a space to share next and best practices, ideas and documents.
Tickets are $35 for General Admission, with scholarships available at pay-what-you-can rates.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a scholarship.
