The University of Oregon is sponsoring the Food Justice Conference this month. The 3 day event will be held on Feb 19-21.
Food Justice explores the history and future of our food system with a focus on three themes: community, equity and sustainability.
Food Justice will feature a unique forum called the Food Fair & Conference Exhibition Hall. The fair will take place during the final day of the conference and will highlight the work of local as well as national nonprofits, farms and food purveyors. Participating organizations will set up a poster display or hands-on demonstration about their work and will be available to interact with conference goers throughout the day.
Slow Food Eugene will participate with a table at the Food Fair on Feb 21. The fair is located at the Erb Memorial Union (EMU) from 9am to 3pm. It’s free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
