Save the Date! National Rural Grocery Summit Set for June 20-21, 2022 in Wichita, KS
The Rural Grocery Initiative is excited to announce that the National Rural Grocery Summit will be held June 20-21, 2022, at the Drury Plaza Hotel Broadview in Wichita, Kansas.
The National Rural Grocery Summit is the premier networking and resource-sharing venue for independent grocers and rural food access stakeholders. It brings together grocery store owners and managers, community leaders, food suppliers, academic researchers, healthy food access stakeholders, policy makers and funders to connect, share lessons learned, and innovate around best practices for sustaining locally-owned rural grocery stores and improving access to healthy food in rural communities.
Please plan to join us next June in Wichita! A call for proposals will be issued later this fall, and registration will open in early 2022. Stay tuned!
