All about IU Bloomington: Information at IU: Indiana College
More than 100 residents from across the region joined Indiana University’s Rural Engagement and Sustainable Food Systems Science Service Center in Bedford for the first Indiana Uplands Winter Food Conference on January 30th to share ideas and strategic efforts to improve local access to food for hoosiers to support.
Although Indiana ranks 10th among the largest agricultural economies in the United States, 90 percent of the food Hoosiers consume is imported into the state.
The Center for Rural Engagement and Sustainable Food Systems Science has worked with local communities and experts in the Midwest to examine activities and barriers that affect local access to food.
