In our third semi-annual event, the 2017 Alaska Food Festival & Conference was held in Fairbanks for the first time. We had speakers presenting on a variety of food security, production, business, and community issues, and a fun and educational food festival, which included Alaska farmers, food demonstrations and hands-on interactive workshops on raising, harvesting and preparing food.
The goals of the conference and festival are to: (1) increase awareness of Alaska food issues among the general population; (2) provide training, resources, and networking opportunities to increase involvement in local food issues by community members and decision makers; and (3) increase connections and build community between the public, Alaska food businesses, NGOs, governmental entities, Tribal entities, and others to support local economic development and innovative solutions.
Thank you to all who made this conference a great success!
