About this series of events:

April 14:

Tickets: $15

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented shifts and disruptions for our local food system. It also brought new and heightened attention to the structure and resiliency of the US and global food systems, and our local food system appears to have significantly increased the scope and scale of its market reach as a result.

In this 3-part series, we’ll explore how our local food system has responded to Covid-19 disruptions, what successful adaptations have been implemented, what obstacles its encountered, and the economic and value-chain impacts. And we’ll wrap it up with a local food and beer tasting at everyone’s favorite public market, Findlay Market!

Tickets and registration for the event on the 14th can be found here.

April 28:

Tickets: $15

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented shifts and disruptions for our local food system. It also brought new and heightened attention to the structure and resiliency of the US and global food systems, and our local food system appears to have significantly increased the scope and scale of its market reach as a result.

Join us for a panel discussion with local food aggregators, producers, and purveyors as we explore how the pandemic has impacted our local food system. Over the past decade-plus, the local food movement has challenged industrialized food production practices in the United States by advocating for local production that is more environmentally and socially sustainable. We’ll look at how the pandemic may actually offer us a glimmer of hope for the future of local food.

Tickets and registration for the event on the 28th can be found here.
