The Idea:

Because of all the enthusiasm around GOOD FOOD in Wisconsin, we are looking to use the summit to build partnerships across the food system, bring together LOTS of people, and promote sustainable, resilient, equitable, healthy, and profitable food systems development.

We have a VISION for how this could come together, but we want to invite YOU to be part of the team.

Together, we can put on an event that will do more than any of our single organizations could accomplish. We hope to:

  • Attract MORE PEOPLE,
  • INCREASE the VISIBILITY of all our organizations and the great work we’re all doing,
  • Create a space for CROSS-SECTOR visioning and collaboration,
  • BUILD all of our NETWORKS, and
  • Increase our organizations’ political capital to better address FOOD SYSTEMS CHANGE. 

The idea right now is that each partner organization would plan some content in the larger summit and have a person on the “core” planning team.

  • WLFN will provide the “space” (the conference venue, planning, coordination, fundraising) as advised by the core planning team.
  • Then, key partners plan the “tracks” (the sessions geared toward your constituents) or “chunks” of the summit.

That is the basic idea. As the core team develops, as will the idea. Join us to make this event YOUR EVENT TOO!

See you on May 6th, 11am – 1pm, in Madison!
