2017 Massachusetts Food System Forum

November 17, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm


Friday, November 17, 2017  •  9:30 – 3:30
Doubletree Hotel, 99 Erdman Way, Leominster

The Massachusetts Food System is full of activity, energy, and innovation – from the growth in urban agriculture, to increased access to healthy foods, to innovative education and supports for food system entrepreneurs, to efforts to reduce food waste, to schools integrating nutrition and farming into their curricula, and much more. Much has been accomplished, and there is an abundance of work underway and more challenges to address. Join Massachusetts food system leaders, organizers, activists, advocates, and mobilizers as we check in on progress toward a more sustainable and equitable food system, and discuss opportunities for collective action.

It has been two years since the completion of the Massachusetts Local Food Action Plan. The 2017 Massachusetts Food System Forum is an opportunity to learn about what has been accomplished since then toward the goals of the Plan, and to have discussions to develop plans and strategies for future collaborative work.

Registration is only $15 and includes lunch. Register online here.

Email Director Winton Pitcoff with questions.
