Healthy food access is a grand challenge for all regions of Minnesota. Like all grand challenges, this one requires the energy and creativity of multiple sectors, including:
  • Agriculture
  • Anti-hunger organizers
  • Tribal
  • Community development
  • Education
  • Retail
  • Health
  • Philanthropy
Extension staff in general and FD staff in particular are well-positioned to address food access, so we encourage you to participate in the workshops, networking, and issue-area strategic discussions at the Food Access Summit. These venues promise to energize and connect conference participants. Together, we can implement strategies to create an equitable food system for all, from the producer to the consumer.

Review the full schedule and breakout workshops and register for the conference on the Food Access Summit 2015 website.
