Are you thinking like a network?
You may have read the blog post my fellow network nerd Jamie Bain wrote about thinking like a network. You may have also read that cold weather didn’t keep people away from the summit hosted by the Central Regional Food Access Network. As Extension and Minnesota become more “net-centric,” we in Family Development are developing new resources to meet the needs of our Health and Nutrition staff, partners, and the communities we serve. Case in point, our new web page: Food Networks in Minnesota.
This web page hosts an ArcGIS map and a sortable directory of food networks in Minnesota.

This web page also has information about how to join the new Minnesota Food Networks email list and upcoming quarterly meetings. We created these resources to promote more learning, connecting, and engagement between food network leaders and others working on food systems change in Minnesota communities and across the state.
Please share these resources with partners (here’s a shortened link for you to use: http://z.umn.edu/mnfoodnetworks), and don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions, ideas, or to seek out some network nerd camaraderie.
