Local foods production workshop scheduled

leave a comment »

If you’re interested in the local foods movement, check out this press release from our friends at the Center for Rural Affairs and the Nebraska Rural Initiative:

Are you interested in learning how you could play a part in moving local foods into larger grocery stores in the state and beyond? Demand for local food by mainstream retailers, like the independent grocery chains in Nebraska, can mean reliable sales and more volume per sale than direct-to-consumer marketing. You can learn more by attending an informational meeting with Diana Endicott, who established the “Good Natured Family Farms” label for locally grown food in Kansas. She will discuss how she developed a farm-to-market system for local food in Kansas City and her interest in working with Nebraska producers.

The meeting will be held at the Ramada Inn in Kearney, Nebraska, on Thursday, April 15 from 1-4 p.m. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. Please email your intention to attend the meeting to kpeterson2@unl.edu or call 402.472.9287.
