Mark your calendars!
The 8th annual Local Food Connection is happening on Monday, February 3, 2014 at Lane Community College in Eugene.
The Local Food Connection connects local farmers, ranchers and fishermen with area food buyers (chefs, grocery stores, restaurants, and distributors), creating business opportunities that support and sustain our local food supply system. The day is filled with a keynote address–this year focusing on distribution– a networking session, workshops, and a fabulous local lunch.
The agenda for the 2014 Local Food Connection is filled with opportunities to network, build new relationships, and learn from experts in a variety of fields related to our local food system. Also, don’t miss out on one of the best conference lunches around. Lane Community College Culinary Art students prepare a feast, all from food donated by local producers.
