April 13, 2015: Challenges and Opportunities in Building a Regional Food System, presented by Susie Sutphin

We are pleased to welcome Susie Sutphin to present: “Challenges and Opportunities in Building a Regional Food System.”

Living in the non-agricultural “food desert” of the high alpine Truckee-Tahoe environment presents challenges in food security, lends itself to a lack of sustainably grown food, and can leave us disconnected from our food-abundant neighbors. Not every community can grow their own food, but we can take responsibility for how our regionally-grown food is sourced and distributed.

Susie Sutphin, Executive Director of the non-profit Tahoe Food Hub and a 15-year Truckee resident, will discuss how the Tahoe Food Hub works to aggregate sustainably-produced food sourced from within 100 miles, while ensuring equal food access and exploring ways to grow food locally using 4-season growing techniques.

She’ll discuss the challenges and opportunities in creating this grassroots effort that aims to galvanize our community to build a regional, sustainable and equitable food system.

The meeting will be on Monday, April 13th, 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. A $5 fee includes pizza and salad. Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking with other technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee region.

This month’s event is sponsored by New Leaders, Clear Capital and Your Truckee Office.
