Local food plays a role in growing Atlanta’s economic development by increasing the productivity of local farms, providing sustainably-grown, locally-sourced foods for farmers markets, and creating jobs and economic development for Atlanta’s citizens.
The Economic Development Local Food Forum will highlight some of the innovative organizations, social enterprises and local food entrepreneurs that are using local food to create jobs, meet customer demand, and increase access to sustainably-grown, locally-sourced food.
Come learn how Atlanta’s new breed of local food entrepreneurs are growing our city's local food economy at the Economic Development Local Food Forum.
This is a free event hosted by Food Well Alliance in partnership with Fresh Harvest, Gilliam's Community Garden and the Atlanta Beltline Partnership.
Lunch will be provided.
This forum is apart of Food Well Alliance's Local Food Forum Series, which aims to bring our city together to learn more about Metro Atlanta’s local food movement and the hard work being done to connect our city to urban growers and fresh food. The series is a component of the recently published Local Food Baseline Report, which highlights the key trends, challenges, and opportunities, and movement leaders that are building community in Metro Atlanta using sustainably-grown, locally-sourced food.
