ASI's Gail Feenstra will speak at a local food workshop in Lake County on Thursday, October 21.

Her presentation on “Farm-to-School from the Ground Up: What Works and How to Get There,” will identify elements, practices and policies that are working in urban and rural schools throughout the state, including procurement models and lessons from inside the kitchen, such as “Cooking from Scratch Boot Camps.”

She also will engage the audience in a participatory discussion about sharing innovations and exploring ideas for making new connections in the Lake County regional food system. 

The workshop is sponsored by a grant from the California Department of Food & Agriculture and Lake County Public Health Department, and is organized by the Health Leadership Network (HLN) and Lake County’s UC Cooperative Extension Office.

There is no charge for the workshop, but registration is requested.
