Food Systems Friday Webinar Series Be on the lookout for a pop-up webinar after the holidays!

“Food Systems Fridays” began at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The M.S. in Sustainable Food Systems (MSFS) program is an intentionally designed online graduate program. With most people sequestered in their homes, yet eager to learn and be connected, our faculty saw an opportunity to use our expertise to build a diverse virtual learning community. At the time, there were critical food systems issues emerging and we wanted to make sure folks were able to access information, resources, best practices, and participate in the discourse. (Remember when everyone was suddenly talking about supply chains !?)
Bringing together practitioners, advocates, community members, students, and scholars in a learning and sharing environment helped to strengthen our national food systems network and still provides excellent insights and resources today.
We invite you to choose a topic and have a listen! Feel free to share these links in your networks. Stay tuned for information in the new year!
