Buying, preparing, and eating locally grown food has positive effects on students, the campus, the environment, and the surrounding community. Local food purchasing is also an important part of creating a campus with a sustainable future, and dining services administrators can lead the way in campus sustainability by introducing locally grown foods into their services. Join us and learn what it takes to start a local food purchasing program.

This web conference is aimed at institutions exploring local food purchasing or looking to expand their current local and sustainability initiatives. Directors of dining, dining services managers, purchasing managers, auxiliary service directors, and sustainability coordinators will benefit from attending this event.
