National and regional speakers will engage attendees in highly interactive sessions to evaluate how we are planning for a better, more equitable food system built upon Eastern Shore agriculture. Who benefits from the current food system? Can Shore agricultural or behavioral shifts improve human, societal, and environmental health? What changes to our food system are realistic?

Come help plan for a better system and learn the realities of how food affects our region. Come hungry and join us November 10th, in Kent Island, MD, for a provocative day of evaluating what it is to have a truly healthy, sustainable, and realistic food system!
