Nov 3rd, 2019 | Category: News

BELLINGHAM – The Whatcom Food Network invites organizations and individuals connected to our local food system to attend the Fall Forum on Food Processing in Our Region: History, Trends, and Upcoming Innovations. The forum will be held on Thursday, Nov. 14 from 8:50 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Pioneer Pavilion Community Center in Ferndale. Discuss the proposed waterfront food campus project, Millworks, led by Mauri Ingram of the Whatcom Community Foundation. Millworks will include a commercial kitchen space, processing and storage opportunities, event space, and more. Learn about the history of processing from Tammy Cooper-Woodrich of the Nooksack Tribe and Dave Green of Skagit Valley Malting, and hear from a panel of agricultural processing experts from our region on the innovations and challenges. After the presentation, a facilitated discussion will provide attendees a chance to give feedback on the project. Multiple networking sessions will ensure attendees have ample time to collaborate with key food systems representatives, as well as the Whatcom Food Network steering committee. A light breakfast with coffee and tea will be provided, as well as appetizers in the afternoon. This event is made possible by support from the Whatcom Community Foundation and City of Ferndale.
