Event description

Description

The LSU AgCenter is once again hosting a statewide farm to school conference to bring together farmers, food distributors, school administrators, school nutrition program directors, teachers, parents, food hubs, and food processors in the interest of Louisiana agriculture, local food systems, school gardens, and healthy school meals. Through the farm to school conference, we are looking to energize the movement here in Louisiana, as well as provide educational and networking opportunities for school food service personnel, farmers, teachers, and stakeholders.


New this year! We are thrilled to be hosting our first Meet the Buyer Reception, as part of the Louisiana Farm to School Conference. Join us for a casual evening of networking with retail, wholesale, and institutional buyers to learn how to get more fresh produce into the value chain and onto store shelves. This event helps by connecting buyers to regional fruit, vegetable and other specialty crop producers looking to sell their products. The reception gives both exhibitors and producers the opportunity to meet in a relaxed face-face environment to create and grow lasting relationships! This is an event you won't want to miss! You must be registered for this event separately from the general admission to the conference on October 10.

October 9, 4:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

October 10, 8:00 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
