In the previous weeks, the environmental public health office in Callaway County has received several calls and/or visits from people wanting to be able to sell produce to food establishments.
We would like to invite those that are interested in selling to local food establishments or local food establishments that are interested in partnering with local producers for their fresh fruits/vegetable needs to attend an informational meeting on March 4th, 2014 at the Callaway County Health Department Community Meeting room at 2:00 pm or at 7:00 pm.
We are very excited to be the bridge that gets these two groups together so please feel free to spread the word. It is our goal to have a list of local producers who are interested and what they might have as well as a list of food establishments that would like to purchase local produce. This is for anyone in Callaway County (including City of Fulton, City of Auxvasse, City of New Bloomfield, City of Holts Summit or any other town that may have a farmer’s market!) This is not to replace the local farmer’s markets, just another avenue to bring fresh local produce to our citizens.
Please call in advance because the room has limited seating and if we need to schedule more meetings or have a larger venue, we would like to be able to find one.
