Call for Proposals: 2017 Alaska Food Policy Council Festival & Conference 

Do you have an innovative idea for food production and harvesting in Alaska? This is your opportunity to be heard! The 2017 Alaska Food Conference and Festival is November 3 and 4 in Fairbanks at Pike’s Waterfront Lodge and AFPC is now accepting proposals for presentations.

The Alaska Food Policy Council’s goal is to create a healthier, more secure, and more self-reliant Alaska by improving our food system. Past conferences have covered everything from growing mushrooms to keeping chickens and the ins and outs of starting a new food business, and they’re hoping to build on that foundation with more insightful talks and presentations this year.

REQUEST FOR ABSTRACTS

The presentation, workshop, and poster abstract submission portal is now open for the 2017 Alaska Food Policy Council Food Conference and Festival.

The Alaska Food Conference and Festival is an opportunity for presenters and attendees to learn more about — and engage in — the various issues affecting Alaska’s food system.  The goals of the conference and festival are to: (1) increase awareness of Alaska food issues among the general population; (2) provide training, resources, and networking opportunities to increase involvement in local food issues by community members and decision makers; and (3) increase connections and build community between the public, Alaska food businesses, NGOs, governmental entities, Tribal entities, and others to support local economic development and innovative solutions.

Questions regarding abstract submission can be directed to Liz H. Snyder, AFPC Co-Chair at ehodges4@alaska.edu.  Questions pertaining to all other conference/festival details can be directed to Lorinda Lhotka, AFPC Co-Chair at lorinda.lhotka@alaska.gov.
