Local Foods, Local Places Workshop

  • Cooperage Building 214 Pecan Street Peoria, IL, 61602 United States (map)

Organized by a variety of public and private partners, the Local Foods, Local Places workshop will take place Wednesday, May 22 andThursday, May, 23. We will concentrate on creating and implementing a local food plan, focusing in particular on Peoria’s South Side. We will build upon work already being done in the community, while drawing from relevant data and trends. Meals and refreshments will be available both days of the workshop.
Preceding the Wednesday workshop, there will be an interactive, pop-up tour of 1312 SW Adams, currently out for Request for Inquiry, envisioned as a Community Engagement Center addressing local food and health access needs. The location of the pop-up tour is only a few-hundred feet away from the workshop, so individuals can easily attend both events.
You can register for the event and pop-up tour here. Event times and locations listed below.
