I wish I had known about the Tennessee Food Safety Task Force sooner. What a great coalition working to help develop food safety solutions for local food. I wish we in KY could do this program along with them. Buyers, scientists, various state and local governments, school foodservice buyers all meeting to talk about local food and how to do it as safely as possible.
You can see what you missed skimming over the program. Many excellent presentation - - every MarketReady alum should check in.
The good news - - I'm promised by the program organizers that they are going to post the presentations.
Sarah Johnson, (Nashville Grown Food Hub) Jon Dicki (Nashville Schools FSD), and Jeremy Barlow (Sloco Sandwich Shop) sharing the innovative things they are each doing to support local food in the Nashville, TN area.
Also especially enjoyed hearing about the Food City's buy local program. Great news for the KY/TN/VA region. Hooray for the regional that is getting this local food merchandising right. Mike Tipton, the FC Produce buyer, has been doing an awesome job. I really hope you can check in soon to the TN Food Safety Task Force site and see his presentation.
