Explore Local Food Systems at World Explorations - This Weekend!

World Explorations Lecture Series Presents:

 

The North Valley Food Hub: Supporting Local Food Systems

 

Join us on Sunday April 26thth from 4-5 pm at the Chico Women’s Club to learn how the North Valley Food Hub (NVFH) is helping to preserve local farmland and support local food producers from founder, Noelle Ferdon and Director of Research and Development, Dr. Jacob Brimlow,  Assistant Professor of Agricultural Business in CSU, Chico’s College of Agriculture.  

 

We all want to support local in our daily practices – from farmers markets to businesses.  Now meet a group who is actively finding new purpose and new markets for expanding the role of local food in our area.  The North Valley Hub began in 2014 with workshops and resources.  Still it is critical to generate sales between larger producers and buyers such as restaurants and school districts.  Learn how these new collaborations place greater demands on food safety for growers. 

 

World Explorations is a free lecture series sponsored by the Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology.  The talk is free and open to the public. 

 

The Chico Women’s Club is located at 592 E. 3rd Street in downtown Chico.
