Event description
North State Food & Farming Convening: Creating a Regional Food System Resilient to Disaster

About this Event

The Center for Healthy Communities, Butte County Local Food Network, Nevada County Food Policy Council, Community Action Agency, and the Center for Regenerative Agriculture and Resilient Systems, along with the California Food & Farming Network (CFFN) invite you to the North State Food and Farming Convening: Creating a Regional Food System Resilient to Disaster. Come share and learn from the North State community on topics including supporting our family farmers, food access and recovery, and the health of local food systems in the face of disaster.

This event is an opportunity for partners working across our region to come together, share our challenges, assets, and goals, and build our shared vision for food and farming in our region. California Food & Farming Network members working at the state-level will attend to learn from local advocates and make connections to state policy opportunities (to learn more about CFFN, see below).

Activities will include:

  • A panel on lessons learned from the North State regions response to the Camp Fire
  • Breakout discussions
  • Time for networking and sharing with Convening attendees
  • Enjoying a free locally-sourced lunch!

You can expect to:

1. Build relationships with organizations in your community, region, and in Sacramento with aligned values and interests

2. Identify opportunities to advance local goals at the state-level through state policies already in the works and new legislation

3. Exercise greater collective power to make change in the food system!

Register by Monday, October 21st to join the North State Convening. Lunch will be provided and funds are available to help cover the costs of travel.
