Local events engage communities and share project findings (part 2 of 2)

In 2015 and 2016, several Consumption Team members hosted events that shared some of the results of the EFSNE project to engage community members on food and agriculture issues in their particular locations. The events, funded by a separate NIFA conference grant, were as diverse as the communities themselves. In some cases they resulted in new on-the-ground efforts to promote food access. These activities sought to stimulate thinking around taking regional level data on food and agricultural sectors and applying it to the local context. Here's what took place in Baltimore, MD, Dover, DE, and Charleston, WV.
