Good Food Showcase @ The Leichtag Foundation Ranch
Sep 3 @ 2:57 pm – 3:57 pm

The 5th Annual Good Food Showcase is an event to connect buyers with local good food businesses from the San Diego County region.   Over the last four years this annual Showcase has helped connect hundreds of institutional purchasers with dozens of local farms and other producers.  Surveyed buyers from the 2016 Showcase reported purchasing over $120,000 in local and sustainable foods as a result of their attendance.

The Good Food Showcase will be held on Friday, September 15, 2017 from 11:00am to 2:00pm at Coastal Roots Farm in Encinitas. Every year the showcase brings growers, distributors, and other good food businesses together with the institutional market to make connections and help expand our local economy and encourage more consumption of fresh, healthy fruits, vegetables, and other good food products. Food and beverages will also be provided.

At the Good Food Showcase we strive to increase the education and awareness of how community well-being is tied to a healthy food system.  By building a stronger market for our local farms and food producers, we are building a healthier community.

The San Diego Food System Alliance presents the Food Waste Solution Summit III

Action-packed convening for multi-sector leaders and advocates committed to food waste and hunger in San Diego County.

  • Discuss promising solutions and high-impact opportunities
  • Hear national trends and align San Diego’s actions
  • Network and collaborate across sectors
  • Strategize to advance policies and actions forward in San Diego

Good Food Community Fair @ Worldbeat Cultural Center in Balboa Park
Oct 1 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

Slow Food Urban San Diego cordially invites you to our largest collection of slow food activists in San Diego County: The Good Food Community Fair. Join us on Sunday, October 1st from 11am – 3pm as we celebrate all things slow and expand the community table to anyone and everyone interested in exploring the Good, Clean, and Fair food movement in San Diego.

What to Expect: We like to think of the fair as part festival, part conference, part food-stravaganza. You’ll get to enjoy culinary demos and panel discussions while sampling delicious libations and tasty treats from local food purveyors, learn about the true cost and value of food from local farmers, take a tour of the first sustainable, edible garden in Balboa park, meet local organizations dedicated to food justice and more!

Special programming and community partners will highlight and celebrate our community’s successes in fair food and discuss ways we can work toward a more just and regenerative food system for all people, animals, and the land. Stay tuned for final schedule.

Location: The Worldbeat Cultural Center in Balboa Park – with free parking across the street

Tickets: Encouraged donation of $5 pre-sale, $10 at the door
