I just wanted to make a quick correction. FSEP is based in southeast Michigan (not southwest as I indicated below), which includes the Wayne County/Detroit area. My apologies!
I’m very happy to announce that the 5th National Farm to Cafeteria Conference will be held in Detroit, MI on May 17-19th, 2010. With the theme “Taking Root”, this conference is brought to you by the Community Food Security Coalition and the national Farm to School organization. The Food System Economic Partnership (FSEP) in southwest Michigan is the local host organization for this conference, and will be coordinating the local planning for the event. Please see the attached Save the Date notice and the conference website – www.farmtocafeteriaconference.org – for more information, but be sure to check back to the website for updates as we make plans. Please do share this exciting news with your networks as well!
We’ll be in touch as we continue planning as we’ll certainly need your help to pull off a great conference and spotlight farm to school and farm to cafeteria projects in Michigan!
