Come one and come all – TYFPC’ers Tracy and Jason will be speaking at Food Forward‘s “Future of the Food Sector” forum on Tuesday February 22 from 9:30-11:30 at Deer Park Library. See registration and event details below.
The food and agriculture sector from now on will look a lot different than it has for the last fifty years – and the young leaders in this forum are guiding the way.
Our speakers include those developing programs and policies that are changing the way we see the food system while doing work that will transform how we understand health, food access, community and sustainability. They will share a wealth of knowledge and ideas in leading-edge programs and policy frameworks being tried & tested in Toronto and Ontario universities, municipalities, non-profits and businesses.
Topics covered will include urban agriculture, local sustainable food procurement, food literacy and municipal policy. The forum will be a beneficial opportunity for anyone working or interested in food & agriculture, planning, health, environment and policy, whether in private enterprise, government or the citizen sector.
Refreshments (fair trade and local fare) will be provided.
