GFC 2023


Program development for Good Food Conference: Path to 2030 is currently underway, with more meaty information on specific sessions, speakers, and experiences to be shared in June.  Focus, care, and intent is being taken on every front, from the main stage to the smallest detail, to ensure a gathering like no other. Until then, here’s a sneak peek at three main themes and ways we’ll dig into each:
