Join this strategic conversation on the creation of a food hub for Calgary. What kind of food hub? Where should it be located? How would it be financed? These are the kinds of questions and others that we will explore together.
This will be a cross-sector conversation with representatives from government, non-profit, and business communities, as well as individuals. This workshop is for you if you are working in, or passionate about, our local food system and the creation of a food hub. Note: There are two required assignments in advance of this event. Please see the instructions below.
|Pre-workshop survey on your ideal Food Hub||Please complete this

|Potluck homework||For lunch, we will be having a potluck. You are asked to bring a small dish made from ingredients as close to Calgary as possible.Please have a list of each ingredient and the distance it has to travel to get to Calgary, along with the total distance (kms travelled) for your dish. We will place this next to your dish.|
