Recent events and activities to support local action on food
Our events bring a diverse set of people and projects together from around the country to explore in depth a particular local food issue and to network with other projects. If you have an idea for an event that you’d like to see happen in your part of the country then get in touch (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our events are open to all, but Local Action on Food members get a large discount on attending! So do please consider joining the network.
