Our staff recently attended a conference at University of Vermont called the UVM Food Systems Summit. The conference was dedicated to answering the question “what makes food good?” with a specific emphasis on creating a more sustainable food system.
The topics ranged from food rescue programs to farming techniques to incorporating food justice into initiatives.
We learned a lot about sustainable food systems that we will continue to strive to bring to our work at UMass. Thank you to UVM for hosting the summit and sharing your inspiring food initiatives!
