Growing the Local Food Movement
Long Beach Fresh is dedicated to expanding Long Beach’s local food economy and infrastructure in ways that benefit local communities. We think that everyone should have affordable access to good food – food that is nutritious, culturally relevant, and that has integrity in how it’s produced and distributed.
Here’s what we’re doing about it
Foodways Summit is a week of events tours, panels and parties that celebrate and explore the local food movement in Long Beach, CA.
Our purpose is to gather and connect the local food movement together and with new partners, storytellers, farmers, gardeners, helpers, leaders, investors, chefs, food brands, educators, food buyers & distributors, health professionals, residents, seniors, youth, organizations, students, newbies, partners and supporters.
