“Building Regional Food Hubs,” a conference connecting healthy food, farms and communities, will be held 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 9 on the campus of Methodist Theological School in Ohio, 3081 Columbus Pike in Delaware. Registration is $10, available at www.mtso.edu/foodhubconference. Student registration is free.
The conference is presented by Methodist Theological School in Ohio, the Ohio State University Initiative for Food and Agricultural Transformation (InFACT), Franklinton Farms, and MTSO’s Seminary Hill Farm. It is supported in part by a Linkage and Leverage grant through InFACT.
The day will connect practitioners, researchers, activists and others engaged in the development of regional food hubs to network and share best practices. Practitioners and researchers will share the findings of a food hub project aimed at improving food access in Columbus, among other learning opportunities.
“Building Regional Food Hubs” is dedicated to the life and work of Patrick Kaufman, who died Sept. 13 at age 40. Kaufman co-founded Franklinton Farms and coordinated MTSO’s Community Food and Wellness Initiative.
