Long Beach’s First Food Summit

On Memorial Day week, Long Beach Fresh hosted a week of events spanning 15 locations across the greater Long Beach area, with the goal of bringing together residents, institutions, entrepreneurs, and farmers to share ways to improve the local food system.The summit was driven by proposals and suggestions from locals, and saw over 200 attendees making some great strides toward food access, innovation, and learning.

Our report, linked below as an e-book, summarizes our events and offers highlights and insights moving forward. The next Foodways Summit is scheduled for the first week of June, 2019!

As planning begins for a 2019 summit, we could use more crowd-sourced support. Your sponsorship is tax-deductible, as Long Beach Fresh is fiscally sponsored by Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donate to our campaign here, and claim some perks for this coming year’s events, with the dates to be announced.

The summit also received some great local press, which can be found here. More photos can be found here.
