Dear --FNAME--,

We are thrilled to announce the Bedford 2020 Food Forum, a major community event celebrating Hudson Valley local food, to be held on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at Fox Lane High School.

This event will feature a keynote address from NY Times food journalist, Mark Bittman, followed by a wide selection of dynamic workshops and panel discussions, an interactive local food expo and (of course!) fabulous food. 
 
 
 
 
The event is planned around four themes:
  • Buy: How and where to buy delicious, healthy local food 
  • Eat:  Explore food policies and how to take action for our land and health
  • Grow: Tips and tools for growing and enjoying your own backyard harvest
  • Share: Hear from organizations and farmers who are sharing fresh local food with the food insecure among us - and how to get involved

Each of these will also cover the important topic of eliminating food waste in our community.

Please mark you calendar and Forward to a Friend!  Registration opens in early January.
