Local Food Lobby Day 2020

April 2 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

On Thursday, April 2nd, local food advocates, farmers, and citizens from across the state will come together in Springfield for Local Food Lobby Day to encourage their legislators to support local food and farms. Local Food Lobby Day will consist of a brief lobbying 101 training, a legislative update on the important bills, and lunch (consisting of locally grown and prepared food of course!). Join us in striking up honest conversations with our legislators about the importance of local food systems to our health, communities, and environment, and advocating for positive policy solutions that support local farms and wholesome food access for all.
