Janet Katz, Director

Janet’s unique background includes master’s degrees in both chemistry and sustainable food systems; years as a dedicated community volunteer event planner; and even documentary film production. In 2015 she directed From Fencerows to Foodsheds, which explores the story of two Indiana communities working to revitalize their local food systems.

Janet has earned respect across our region as a leading advocate for increasing the bounty of local food that flows from our land to our tables, and was recently featured as a Local Food Hero by Hoosier Locavore.


Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the Northeast Indiana Local Food Network share a passion for Northeast Indiana for growing our local food system. Each board member bring valuable skills and diverse perspectives as local producers, marketers, chefs and economic development leaders from across our region. We are grateful for their time and their commitment to our mission.


Regional Steering Committee

In 2016, Northeast Indiana Local Food Network was launched by this dedicated committee from across the region, who developed the mission and initial goals of the organization. We greatly appreciate their vision for, and dedication to, our local food system.



Regional Advisory Council - Coming soon!

We are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced Advisory Council to guide us and keep us grounded. We’re looking for dedicated local food stakeholders with ideas and expertise to share. Interested in joining us, or know someone we should meet? Connect and let us know.
