Event Sponsor 


You are invited to partner with Northeast Indiana Local Food Network by sponsoring the 2019 Local Food Forum!   

We are seeking individuals, organizations, and businesses who are interested and invested in growing the local food system across our region to support the Local Food Forum with a contribution of financial or in-kind resources.  Sponsorship levels for in-kind donations are based on cash equivalent. 

Generous support from our Event Sponsors enables us to offer this valuable resource and networking opportunity for area farmers, entrepreneurs, advocates and eaters by helping to offset the cost of programming and procuring locally-sourced foods.

Your generous sponsorship allows us to offer:                                                        

  • Budget-friendly event registration, exhibitor and vendor booth fees
