Description

Join representatives from our local food system (i.e. food producers and growers, food processors, manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers, chefs and food retailers, schools and educators, health services, resource recovery agencies and general workplace settings) to inform the development of Greater Bendigo’s first ever Food System Strategy!
