Time: 10:00 am

Across the city, and especially in low-income neighborhoods, residents may face barriers to accessing healthy and affordable food. Lack of access to nutritious food can negatively affect diet and health, and can often be traced as a root cause of crime. The People’s Food Summit aims to bring together the people of the City of Indianapolis and Marion County with City officials and subject-matter experts to engage in developing a comprehensive strategy for addressing problems of limited food access.

The People’s Food Summit’s Morning Session will include an exploration of current and upcoming activities across Marion County that seek to improve food access. The Morning Session will be followed by a catered lunch provided by the Indy Food Council.

The People’s Food Summit’s Afternoon Session will include strategic planning preparation be led by Purdue Extension-Marion County. The session will allow community members to organize themselves, based on their personal interests in the food system, by defined strategic topics. Each strategic working group will develop a vision, mission, objectives, and strategies to create a positive impact on Marion County’s food system. Following the Summit, the working groups will dedicate themselves to three subsequent meetings to develop a comprehensive, replicable strategy to addressing a specific food access challenge. By the end of the year, all strategic documents will be compiled to create a county-wide, community-based strategy for food access.
