Upcoming event: Local Food Conference on 2/16/18 at UNC Wilmington
The Cape Fear Food Council is excited to co-present the 2018 Local Food Conference. Hosted annually by Feast Down East, the conference is designed to bring all those in our community who are involved in supporting and growing the local food system of southeastern North Carolina. This includes farmers and fisherman, food retailers and establishments, foodies, advocates, and community leaders. The purpose of the conference is to strengthen the activities of these groups and the relationships between them.
The 8th annual Local Food Conference will serve as a platform for the community to engage in large-group conversations with the Cape Fear Food Council. These facilitated sessions will allow everyone to participate in the council's current work to identify priority areas for advocacy and collaborative action around local food issues. The groups will be convened around the council's four committees: Production & Processing, Distribution, Consumer Access, and Waste Reduction & Resource Recovery.
Date/Time: February 16, 2018, 8:30am – 3:00pm
Location: UNCW Burney Center
Cost: $20 for farmers & students, $35 for the general public
Conference registration includes locally-sourced breakfast and lunch.
