KSRE Local Foods Systems Statewide Local Foods Virtual Town Hall- January 25, 11 a.m.
Our KSRE local food systems transdisciplinary team would like to invite you and anyone interested to our next statewide quarterly local food systems virtual town hall scheduled for Wednesday, January 25, from 11 a.m. - noon. The goal of the meeting is for people working in the area of local food systems across Kansas to be able to share what their organization is working on related to local food systems and learn what other organizations are doing so that we all can work together to strengthen local food systems in Kansas.
The agenda for the January 25 virtual town hall includes:
1) Five minute presentations by:
a. Kansas Department of Revenue- update on Kansas food sales tax changes.
b. KSU Pollution Prevention Institute- food waste reduction efforts.
c. Local food systems-related legislative update from the Kansas Department of Agriculture.
d. Local food systems-related legislative update from the Kansas Department of Health.
2) Open discussion about upcoming/ ongoing local food systems-related grants in Kansas:
a. KSRE USDA Regional Food Systems Program grant.
b. Any others that would like to share.
3) Brief announcements of upcoming local food systems events/initiatives in Kansas that will be occurring in the next few months- everyone is welcome to share announcements that you might have in this area.
