Event for BPS Municipalities & Post-Secondary Institutions on Advancing Local Food Procurement

Friday, October 26, 2018

The Greenbelt Fund is hosting an interactive event to support Municipalities, School Boards and Post-Secondary Institutions in their local food procurement goals and actions on Tuesday, November 27, from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. in Milton.

The event is open only to Broader Public Sector municipalities and post-secondary educational institutions, who must pre-register a team in order to attend.

If you find momentum in your organization is stuck around policy creation, or you have a policy in place but are unsure how to use it in RFP creation, or you have purchasing strategies in place but no formal language around procurement procedures, get your team together and save the date for this invite-only event.

Facilitators Soni Craik and Stephanie Crocker will send registered teams a questionnaire in the coming weeks to help identify where in the process your team is at to ensure the right experts are in the room to assist you.

Morning presentations will showcase inspiring leaders with specific sector expertise, and in the afternoon participant teams will be invited to sit down with mentors in the field to discuss ideas specific to their situation and create an action plan for moving forward.

Teams should consist of 2-5 members who have an influence on purchasing, food contracts, sustainability and environmental offices and/or work in economic development.
