Morning Panel: The Food Sourcing Challenge

Increasing costs, waning resources, and changes in food production and supply are making nutritional and affordable food harder to source than ever before. Hear from expert panelists about why this problem has emerged, who is affected, and how it is different from the food sourcing challenges of the past.

Afternoon Panel: Food Sourcing Strategies and Solutions

Learn what is being done to address the new challenges of food sourcing, from alternative food production to innovative business solutions. These experts will share strategies for sourcing food, and innovative solutions for keeping food on tables.

Keynote Speaker

Featuring a keynote by John W. Fisk, Ph.D, Director of the Wallace Center at Winrock International, and a national leader in sustainable and equitable food systems.
