2016 State Food Policy Summit

This year will feature Anne Palmer, John Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, and Ferd Hoefner, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, both nationally recognized experts. A range of state food policy topics such as state legislative trends from across the country, the upcoming farm bill, and federal initiatives around nutrition and health will be discussed.

The State Food Policy Summit, held by the John Glenn College of Public Affairs, is the single annual event for food policy interests to join together across the state. The Summit is intended to inspire action by fostering awareness of food policy activities and possibilities at the state level.

Please join us on Tuesday, May 3rd to learn about what is happening across the nation and envision future policy priorities for strengthening Ohio's food system. The State Food Policy Summit is open to the general public and costs $10.00 to attend. This event is made possible through funding from The Ohio State University's Initiative for Food and AgriCultural transformation (InFACT).
