Sponsors sought for 2017 Oregon Community Food Systems Convening.

The Oregon Community Food Systems Convening is a two-day event that brings advocates, organizers, and service providers from throughout the state to Corvallis each February to share information, participate in workshops and trainings, and advance common goals for positive food systems change.

The 2017 Convening will mark the 6th time this event has been held. The 2012-2016 Convenings were made possible by Meyer Memorial Trust. Starting this year, OCFSN is opening the door for other sponsors to show their support for stronger local and regional food systems.
