**PLEASE NOTE NEW DATES**  The NYC Department of Education announced that schools will be open February 20-22 to make up for school days lost to Hurricane Sandy. As a result, we are no longer able to hold the Just Food Conference 2013 on Friday, February 22 as school will be in session. Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the conference.

The new dates are: Friday, March 29th & Saturday, March 30th

We hope you will still be able to attend the conference. Please note the new date falls on Good Friday. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you've already purchased your tickets, they will be honored on the new dates. If you're no longer able to attend and would like a refund, please contact Jessica Vu at events8@justfood.org.


EAT • WORK • GROW THE MOVEMENT

 
On March 29 and 30, 2013, our organization will host the annual Just Food Conference. This two-day event will offer opportunities for the general public, food professionals, entrepreneurs, job seekers, CSA members, community organizers and farmers to come together for two days of workshops and skill- building sessions. The conference will provide attendees with opportunities to learn about national farm and food issues, CSA trends, and cooking and food preservation techniques, as well as ways to mobilize communities in order to increase access to farm-fresh, locally grown food.
 
On Friday from 5:30pm-7:30pm, Just Food and Good Food Jobs will co-host the Good Food Jobs Get Together, a networking event for conference participants and the job-seeking public. On Saturday, we’ll host an EXPO from 12pm-6:30pm featuring exemplary local food artisans, sustainable businesses, and organizations. At the end of the conference, we will host a closing reception from 4:30pm - 6:30pm at the EXPO.  We hope you will join us!
