Making Good Food Work seeks Team Lead Applications and Workshop Proposals

29 Jan

Making Good Food Work accepting Team Lead Applications and Workshop Proposals until February 4

Join us for the Making Good Food Work Conference
April 19-21, 2011 — Atheneum Hotel — Detroit, MI

You are invited to join us for an upcoming working conference and incubation laboratory to develop innovative solutions and document best practices for distributing local and regional food.

This conference features a unique and powerful format in which conference participants will form teams around pre-selected projects and distribution issue areas. Over the course of the conference, each team will work together to help build actual businesses, solve existing business challenges, develop research projects, and identify best practices to help tackle the challenge of local and regional food distribution logistics, infrastructure, and transportation, including tackling these issues in underserved communities.

Conference participants will learn from one another and from experts and leave with business and action plans, a stronger network of knowledgeable colleagues, and maybe some seed funds to help you along the way for your next phase.

We will be accepting applications for team leaders and workshop proposals until February 4th. Download the team lead application here and the workshop proposal form here.

Early registration for general participants is open until February 19th. There are also a limited number of volunteer and scholarships available. For more information, and to register, visit or email

Supported by The Detroit Food Policy Council, Michigan State University, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USDA-AMS, The Wallace Center at Winrock International, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation
