Indiana Food Summit Set for Sept. 25-26

A recent news update from Purdue University indicated that, “Purdue Extension, in cooperation with a number of partner organizations, will host the second annual Indiana Food Summit, Sept. 25-26 at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.

“The summit provides learning, networking and sharing opportunities for anyone who works in the food system, from business people to elected officials, said Jodee Ellett, Purdue Extension local foods coordinator and event organizer.

“‘We hope participants will not only take away new tools, but also be inspired to implement innovative new strategies in their communities,’ she said.”

The news update noted that, “‘Re-localizing food systems takes a lot of time in building networks and relationships,’ Ellett said. ‘We have created an entire day of professional development workshops and will also have regional networking luncheons so you can meet people from your area you might not know.'”

The news update also included the following details:

“The Sept. 26 program will include multiple concurrent sessions with speakers and panels focusing on food policy, healthy food access, farm to school and food business.

“The summit concludes with a vendors fair offering appetizers, a cash bar and networking opportunities.
