You’re invited to the Food Systems Planning Scholars and Students’ Breakfast Gathering at the 2016 ACSP Conference in Portland, OR
We have a robust and growing group of scholars who think & research about food. Scholarship and research on food ranges from issues like food access, urban/rural agriculture, to issues of equity, justice and democracy in the food system. At the past two ACSP conferences, we got together for a formal workshop (Philadelphia) and an informal mingling (Houston). This year in Portland, we invite you to breakfast event, where we’ll talk about elevating food systems planning within ACSP.
Who: Anyone who is interested in food systems planning scholarship and practice. (Please invite others as relevant!).
When: Friday, November 4th, 2016
Time: 8am-9:30am. A hot buffet breakfast will be served.
Where: Portland State University Campus, Smith Memorial Student Union 328/329 (3rd floor)- gives you a chance to see PSU’s campus! And only a 12 minute walk or short transit ride from the Hilton.
What we’ll do:
  • Launch a Food Specialty Group (like FWIG or POCIG), including clarifying our mission
  • Re-launch a Food Research Group, in partnership with American Planning Association’s’ Food Interest Group
  • Catch up with old “foodie” friends and make new ones
  • Connect to people with similar research and teaching interests
  • Nurture a “new wave” of food systems scholars
To help us plan the event, please RSVP by COD November 1st.
