DuPage Food Security Symposium

On September 22, 2017, Loaves and Fishes held a Symposium, Beginning Conversations: Developing Food Security for DuPage County. The goal of this meeting was to begin the development of a Food Security Council responsible for cultivating a strong and equitable food system for DuPage County. The Symposium included several presentations to help attendees form a common understanding of food system components, needs and challenges, as well as identifying opportunities to unite and build a stronger food system. The Symposium presentation materials are included below.
