The Licking County Local Food Council is excited to invite you to a free educational event for local producers, processors, restaurants, retail and institutional buyers to meet and network. In partnership with The Ohio State University Extension and their MarketReady team, the Licking County Local Food Council's 30-Mile Meal project is hosting a free comprehensive educational program that prepares local food producers to sell directly to consumers and wholesale buyers.

Following a separate educational seminar tailored for each group, growers and buyers will have a chance to network and potentially develop a buying/selling relationship. Producers should bring 50 copies of a one-page summary of their operation, product offerings, and contact information. Buyers should also bring 50 copies of a one-page summary of their business history and local food needs. No prior experience necessary everyone is encouraged to attend. Business profiles can be developed by registering with
