Tonight! Next Steps for Food System Change

We’re happy to share this message from our colleague and pal Chris Wood about tonight’s installment of the BALE series in Randolph. Read on for what’s happening tonight, hope to see you there . . . your farmer Suzanne will be on the panel tonight!

Next Steps for Food System Change

What’s the long view? If the year is, let’s say 2050, how have we changed the way we put food on our own table… and the collective table of our neighbors in the region and around the world? What are examples of key challenges that have been overcome? What tools and resources have emerged? What is the new story of how we feed ourselves?

Here’s the deal: Chandler Center for the Arts, Randolph on Thursday, Nov. 7; 6 PM gathering over local food (from Black Krim Tavern) and 6:30 PM program (includes music by accordionist Jeremiah McLane). Hear from leaders of Vermont’s current food system changes:

• Ellen Kahler, Executive Director of the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund and Coordinator of Vermont’s Farm to Plate Initiative;
• Andrea Stander, Executive Director of Rural Vermont;
• Peter Allison, Executive Director of Upper Valley Farm to School and Coordinator of Food to Institution New England (FINE); and
• Suzanne Long, owner of Luna Bleu Farm in Royalton.
