Every other year, farmers, health practitioners, market managers, chefs, legislators, students, educators, food service directors, and local food activists from around the state come together for the Mississippi Food Summit & Agricultural Revival, a three-day event including the Mississippi Farm to Cafeteria Conference and the Farmer to Farmer Conference. They share success stories, problem-solve barriers, provide opportunities, and discuss issues that connect their diverse specialties. With the ultimate goal to educate, inspire, and empower one another, the Mississippi Food Summit is truly a one-of-a-kind gathering that has something for the whole family. |
