Welcome to the National Good Food Network's monthly webinars—an interactive series that gives you the opportunity to learn and connect with on-the-ground practitioners and experts, brought to you by the Wallace Center at Winrock International.
Our October call is on food safety, one of the most critical and fastest moving topics in food systems today.
The National Good Food Network Food Safety Coordinator, Steve Warshawer, will lead an interactive briefing with some of the leaders of efforts to ensure that the needs of small- and mid-sized producers are considered as new laws are formed.
This Cluster Call will include reports from Aimee Witteman, executive director, and Ferd Hoefner, policy director, of the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC), on current Congressional bills on food safety (HR.2749 and S.510), and from Patty Lovera, assistant director of Food and Water Watch (FWW), on the National Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement (NLGMA) hearings. Russell Libby, executive director of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) will present an alternative to the food safety system being debated by the federal government. A Q&A session will follow their presentations.
If you're working with producers, buyers or processors, or supporting the interests of local food systems and small- and mid-size producers, you won’t want to miss this Cluster Call.
