Watch a Conversation on Regional Food Economies from the White House!

Please join us in discovering how investing in local food economies is actually an investment in rural Americancommunities in an exciting conversation held by the White House Rural Council. The White House Rural Council is a cabinet-level council established by the President to drive job creation and economic development in rural America. The Council coordinates the Administration’s efforts in rural America by streamlining and improving the effectiveness of federal programs serving rural America; engaging stakeholders, including farmers, ranchers, and local citizens, on issues and solutions in rural communities; and promoting and coordinating private-sector partnerships.

The conversation, Regional Food Economies: Building Market Opportunities for Rural America, will be held on Monday, June 9th at 12:45pm EST. To watch the conversation please go to White House Live and tune in! This is an exciting educational opportunity that communities and local governments big and small can benefit from as we work together to build more economically and food secure communities across America.
