Professional Development Workshop for Food Councils

$75 includes registration, lunch, parking and materials


Mark Winne is a Senior Advisor to the Center for a Livable Future at the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health and professional speaker, trainer and writer on community food systems, food policy and food security. Mark will lead our workshop for food councils where participants can expect to consider their role in the community food system, explore a comprehensive food planning framework and learn about the mixture of policy and programming for food councils. We will also discuss what a supportive statewide food policy framework would look like for Indiana. Read more about this workshop here.
