E4S in Akron: Linking the Local Food Industry

Great news! E4S (Entrepreneurs for Sustainability) is expanding its Akron events calendar. Hope many of you can make it to this one -- it sounds really interesting and valuable. I will be out of town over spring break so I hope Terra Not Terror can cover this one for us:

New Akron Network Event

Linking the Local Food Industry
April 9th

Join us on April 9th for the first Akron E4S Network Event of 2008 and discover the opportunities for the local food industry in Greater Akron.

This is the first of six Akron Network Events that E4S is planning for the SECOND WEDNESDAY of each month in 2008. E4S Network Events attract leaders from business, government, academia and other institutions who want to put sustainable business practices to work and realize triple bottom line benefits (economic, environmental and social) for their organizations and the region.

On April 9th E4S is collaborating with the Cuyahoga Valley Countryside Conservancy
to explore the possibilities for triple bottom line benefits in the local food industry. Farmers, food distributors, groceries, urban gardeners, chefs and companies who are pledging to purchase local food will be in attendance. Connect with customers and suppliers of the local food supply chain and learn about the exciting local food businesses and projects in the region. Are you interested in starting a new business in the local food industry? Do you want to purchase more local foods?

Discover the possibilities!
