May 2012 Program - Integrating Regional Food System Work in Nutrition Education and Outreach- $35
The growing interest by the public in regional food systems is expanding rapidly. The regional food system is complex and influenced by numerous factors including social issues, food safety, and access. These many facets of regional food systems can often cause confusion not only from consumers but also from the nutrition professionals who are working with them. The Spring 2012 Current Issues in Nutrition program discusses why and how nutrition professionals can get involved with regional food system work in order to better serve their clientele.
