Register now for the WLFN Local Foods Capitol Day!

The Wisconsin Local Food Network will be hosting the first ever Local Foods Capitol Day in downtown Madison, Wisconsin on Wednesday, March 5th at Cooper’s Tavern. The day aims to educate both attendees and legislators about three main topic areas that are important to WLFN members:
• Supporting Wisconsin’s local food program: Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin
• Increasing Farm to School programs statewide
• Promoting local food statewide and educating legislators on why they are so important to Wisconsin

In the morning, attendees will hear from speakers on all three of these topics and will have a Lobby 101 training with professional lobbyists. In the afternoon, attendees will meet with their respective legislators to educate them on the topics discussed. Talking points about each topic area will be provided.
