Local foods forum

The “green” movement has caused some farmers to rethink the way in which they produce food and consumers to purchase more local foods. 
The UNCG Teaching Fellows hosted a forum on local foods last Wednesday in EUC as part of NC Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Steve Troxler’s Speakers Series on Local and Sustainable Agriculture.

Speakers included: Kenneth Rudd and James Kenan, farmers; Chef Jay Pierce, Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen; Rick Cecil and Robert Smothers, Piedmont Triad Farmers Market; Dr. Michael McIntosh, UNCG professor of nutrition; and Dennis W. Quaintance, CEO and CDO, Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels. Commissioner Troxler (in visual) spoke as well.

The forum was sponsored by the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
