From the organizers:
We are pleased that this event is being hosted at the Institute of Child Nutrition (ICN) in Oxford, Mississippi. We will highlight the work of ICN; school food service needs; how farmers can serve the Farm to School market, and provide a networking opportunity for schools, farmers, and others.
Schools are interested in locally grown food; local farmers are eager to grow and sell to them; everyone wants healthier food; and we want to help facilitate that process. Let’s work together to build even stronger relationships.
YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS ONE!
