Join us Thursday, February 4th, 2016, from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. for Alliances—Rediscovering our Food System, a public forum where we will discuss six identified sectors of the food system—land stewardship, food production, distribution, retail, the eater, and the waste stream in Johnson County—and how they all come together to create a vibrant, intact, community-based food system in which each and every one of us can participate. This event is free and open to the public. Food and refreshments will be provided.

When: Thursday, February 4th, 2016

7:00-8:30 p.m.: Panel and discussion: Alliances— Rediscovering our Food System
The food system is a complex network made up of the processes that keep us fed. Each link of the food system is vital, yet as a culture we are often removed from many of the components that make the food system whole. How can we, through our alliances in the community, rediscover our food system, reassert our individual roles, and build together toward a common vision?
