Regional Food Systems: Economic Opportunity through Entrepreneurship is a rollout event for a Federal Reserve System publication, Harvesting Opportunity: The Power of Regional Food System Investments to Transform Communities to be held on September 18, 2017, at Burr Oak State Park, 10660 Burr Oak Lodge Rd, Glouster, OH 45732. Forum participants will discuss how communities use regional food strategies to advance their economic and other community goals, including models for collaboration between policymakers, practitioners, and the financial community. Participants will also explore unanswered research, policy, and resource gaps that, if addressed, might contribute to the advancement and success of regional food systems strategies.

The convening will be hosted by the Federal Reserve Banks of Cleveland and Richmond in partnership with ACEnet and the Central Appalachian Network (CAN). This forum will coincide with the publication of Harvesting Opportunity: The Power of Regional Food System Investments to Transform Communities, a book that focuses on regional food systems as a means for enhancing economic opportunity.
