The objective of this Summit is for the local food community and Environmental Health professionals to come together, in an atmosphere of openness and mutual respect, in order to better understand each other’s perspectives and to explore our mutual interest in assuring safe and healthy food.

The timing of the Summit couldn’t be better, since pending legislation and ongoing efforts are underway to craft new regulations allowing more flexibility for the local food activities taking place in our communities. The Summit will take place in the little farming community of Richvale at Lundberg Family Farm’s brand new ultra-green facility.
