Closing the Food Gap; Connecting Community & Local Food is a symposium designed to address these important topics and connect professionals and students considering these issues. This symposium and the South Mountain Speaker Series event following it: Closing the Food Gap in South Mountain, will both feature keynote speaker Mark Winne, who addresses these issues in his books, "Closing the Food Gap" and "Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners, and Smart Cookin' Mamas".
This half-day symposium, which will take place in Laird Hall at Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA (1:00-6:30pm), is open to food security professionals, students, nutrition educators and anyone involved in the regional food shed. It will provide an opportunity to gain information, network with individuals and organizations, and participate in action planning that will strengthen the South Central PA Food System.
