Building Regional Food Systems, Part 1: Foundational Definitions and the Northeast Register Now
Our monthly NGFN Webinars are interactive sessions that give you the opportunity to learn and connect with on-the-ground practitioners and experts.
What is a regional food system? What makes it different from a local, national or global food food system?
Regional food thinkers Kathy Ruhf and Kate Clancy present some new ideas about regional food systems, along with recent efforts the Northeast has made to understand and strengthen its food system. They will share the results of a large survey of regionally focused food value chains, and talk about how a broad regional network is supporting cross-sector food system development in the Northeast.
