ABOUT:

 

This year’s summit will focus on the financing, investment, and economic development potential of local food systems, with discussions centering around a recent report released by the Federal Reserve entitled “Harvesting Opportunity: The Power of Regional Food System Investments to Transform Communities.” This national framework will be applied to discussions on financial resources available for local and statewide efforts, exploring how it can be harnessed to build food systems and how to leverage the economic development potential of local food in Ohio. This event is dedicated to connecting food council members, policy-makers, finance and economic development specialists and all other stakeholders who want to see a strong regional food system in Ohio.
