Food in Frontenac- A Networking Lunch for Frontenac Local Food Stakeholders

As the study to identify the gaps in infrastructure and services for food producers and processors concludes, the Frontenac CFDC would like to invite Frontenac food stakeholders to a networking lunch on February 2nd to share the findings of the study and to discuss next steps for some of the areas identified. Information booths from the KFL&A Health Unit, OMAFRA, NFU, OFA, KASSI, County of Frontenac and the Frontenac CFDC will be available for participants to peruse. This luncheon will also provide the opportunity for various local food stakeholders to network as well as to gain further information on the common themes identified from the local food study.

Katherine Howes, a Rural Planning & Development graduate student from the University of Guelph who assisted the Frontenac CFDC this summer with the local food study is also simultaneously conducting her thesis research on the role of local food in rural economic development in the County. After lunch, she will give a brief presentation on her preliminary findings from her key stakeholder interviews and the results from the Frontenac CFDC’s study to identify gaps in infrastructure and services for food producers and processors. The study was funded by the Township of South Frontenac. Attendees will then participate in discussions regarding the key identified themes.

The event will be held at the Verona Lions Hall on Friday February 2nd, 2018 with a lunch being served from 12 – 1pm, followed by the presentation and discussion from 1 pm-2pm.  For more information contact Katherine Howes at khowes@uoguelph.ca or Anne Prichard at (613) 372-1414 ext. 204.
