Sustainable Local Food Systems
Michigan’s Great Southwest Sustainable Business Forum will host a networking and education luncheon for local professionals interested in advancing a more sustainable local food system. The event is co-promoted with the Southwest Michigan Local Food Council.
A sustainable community food system integrates food production, processing, distribution, consumption, and waste management to improve the social, environmental, and economic health of its people. Our panel of experts will discuss trends and issues related to sustainability of food purchasing and production in Michigan’s Great Southwest, with lessons for any organization that buys or sells food, and any professional or community member that eats locally.
