The Summit provides space for learning, immersion, relationship building, and dialogue focused on the Minnesota food system. Solutions to the complex issues of our current food system cannot be solved individually, but rather with collective action. Whether you're a farmer, dietician, community organizer, researcher, policy wonk, or food shelf staff, this is the conference for you! We all have something to give and something to learn and invite you to co-create the contents of this Summit with us. An emphasis will be placed on submissions led by and highlighting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and farming communities and the connection to restoring healthy food systems.
We are intentionally committed to making this Summit inclusive and accessible and are working towards finalizing our budget - please don't let financial constraints hold you back from creating with us! We have a limited amount of funds available to aid presenters if finances are a barrier.
