Food Matters May 28 at RISD Portfolio Cafe

Our May Food Matters Community Conversation was co-hosted by our 2 Council members Melina Packer and Brian Goldberg.  Melina and Brian deftly facilitated an 8-person panel conversation and room discussion around our May topic:

How To Grow A Local Food System:  RI-Based Food Businesses Share Their Stories.

The room was packed (standing room only!) and the food, provided by RISD Dining Services, was excellent.
