The Big Day Draws Near


In a few short weeks the Farm To Fork team will officially launch the Farm To Fork website. Of course, between now and then we have much to keep us busy. Beyond putting the final touches on the website, there are a lot of other behind the scenes things we need to do.


Regardless, we are happy to announce that the launch event (scheduled for Thursday October 3rd) will include several short talks about food insecurity, a selection of local food, a presentation by Taste Real, and a preview of phase II of the Farm To Fork project. We’re extremely excited, and hope you’ll be able to join us.


Tickets for the event will be made available in the next few days. Stay tuned for an official announcement by the end of the week.

Twenty-five more days and counting!
