Join us to learn about the amazing ways gardeners, farmers, educators, researchers, food entrepreneurs and others are growing community self-reliance by increasing the production and availability of local food. Afternoon round table sessions will engage participants in identifying ways to build on the great work being done in the region to increase local food production, processing and access. Together, we are building more resilient and self-reliant communities across the Palouse-Clearwater region!

As part of this year's Food Summit, we will be collecting nonperishable donation items for our local food banks, and a hygiene drive that will benefit migrant farm workers in Idaho and Washington. Hygiene items that migrant farm workers need most include sunscreen, feminine hygiene products, hand sanitizer, hand sanitizing wipes, first aid supplies (band-aids, Neosporin-like cream, etc.), and lip balm that contains SPF. Please consider contributing to this year's foodbank and migrant farm workers hygiene drive.
