Join us! All are welcome!

2019 Northeast Indiana Local Food Forum!

Connect with local farmers, food producers, chefs, community leaders, dietitians, healthy food and sustainability advocates and local consumers as come together to learn, share ideas and grow our local food community.

Come for the whole day or join us after work for our Social Hour! Mingle at booths with local food vendors and chefs with others who share your curiosity and passion for local food while enjoying local food, beer, wine, kombucha and juices. At 5pm, we'll kick off our After Party with free food samples from your favorite local food restaurants and live music!

We're contributing $5.00 from EACH paid Forum Registration to help establish a Scholarship Fund for local food producers in our region. Details regarding this fund will be announced at the Local Food Forum.
