You’re invited to a Local Foods, Local Places community meeting & planning session on June 24-25, 2019 at the Initiative Foundation, 405 1st St SE, Little Falls, MN 56345.
This community workshop is on the topic of local food and its potential for strengthening our local economy, supporting healthier people and neighborhoods, and revitalizing our downtown. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) have selected Little Falls for the Local Foods, Local Places technical assistance program, which will result in an action plan for strengthening our local food economy and enlivening our downtown.
A team of these agency partners and their consultants will join local stakeholders to conduct a workshop in Little Falls on Monday, June 24th and Tuesday, June 25th. Your participation and knowledge of the local area is needed to help make this event a success. The workshop will bring together many key stakeholders from throughout our region to develop an action plan primarily around, but not limited to, these goal areas:
look forward to seeing you there.
