THE MS-DI STUDENTS
One of the long-standing traditions deeply valued by the MS-DI program is to support a local charity whose mission dovetails with the annual conference's theme. This year, the students have chosen to contribute to Working Food. Since the conference is being offered free of charge, attendees are encouraged to consider making a donation to this worthy organization.
Working Food works collaboratively at the intersection of three programs to provide business development support and infrastructure, community education on gardening, nutrition, cooking and other food related issues, and better access to fresh and value-added food for individuals, institutions, and businesses.
The organization strives to:
Increase food literacy and security by making connections between local food access, food-related skills, and better health;
Promote cultural, ecological, and economic diversity and justice;
Expand and strengthen the local food economy by creating links between local farmers and our community;
Create a mechanism for local investment in good food and local businesses in order to have a healthier and more equitable food system.
Training in culinary and food industry skills, techniques, and regulations
Assistance with gaining access to local food sources, new markets, and distribution channels
Curate a collection of garden seeds that do well in North Florida climate
