Registration for the Community Food Advocacy Forum, April 28, 2018
The Community Food Advocacy Forum will provide opportunities for networking, strategizing, and addressing challenges to the Charlotte-area food system. The first half of the day will include short updates from select participants about the state of the complex Charlotte food system and its challenges. This will also lead up to the afternoon workshop in which small groups will come together around a specific challenge facing their part of the food system to develop a strategy for addressing this challenge. Continuing the work in each group beyond this workshop is highly encouraged and central to the reason this forum is being held.
When: Date: 4/28/18
Time: 9 AM-3 PM
Where: Johnson C. Smith University
Lunch will be included: pre-registration is required.
