Webinar: The How and Why of Local Government Support for Food Systems
Nov 1 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

In 2015, the Michigan State University Center for Regional Food Systems (CRFS) and the International City-County Management Association (ICMA) conducted a second national survey of local government leaders on their policies, programs, plans, and partnerships that support local food systems. More than 2,200 communities responded.

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future welcomes CRFS and ICMA for one of the first in-depth discussions of the study’s findings. Learn about how and why city and county governments across the country are (or are not) supporting local food and farm efforts and then hear from public leaders about what you can do to effectively engage local government in these efforts.
