Collaboration of Local Sustainable Food in Kingston & Toronto

My Sustainable Canada and the Greenbelt Fund invite you to be part of a workshop on collaboration to get more local sustainable food into public sector institutions. 

Toronto and Kingston are cities of public institutions with a whole lot of buying power. How are these institutions working together with the local food value chain to provide leadership in building a sustainable regional food system? Where are the opportunities for these institutions to lead?  What do local farmers and processors have to offer the public sector - and how do we fulfill the needs of both?  What common interests do we have for collaboration? 

Join us for a one-day workshop in each of these cities to connect institutional food buyers with the local value chain in a conversation around why, where and how to get more local, sustainable food into public institutions.
