ABOUT THE SEA SUMMIT 2021 EVENT
UMass Dartmouth and Farm to Institution New England welcome you to attend the virtual New England Sea Summit 2021 focused on leveraging institutions to support local seafood producers, kelp and underutilized species. Join us for one day of programming which includes presentations from regional seafood experts, an engaging panel and stakeholder dialogue. Speakers will share how a team of colleges and supply chain partners tackled procurement issues through a 2018 New England Food Vision Prize from the Henry P. Kendall Foundation. Learn more about the challenges and opportunities of producing and sourcing farmed kelp and underutilized fish species in New England. Speakers will also share how they worked to bring underutilized species into community and university dining programs, even with the added challenges presented by a global pandemic.
Audience & Purpose
The goal of the Sea Summit is to educate and unite anyone who is interested in: local and sustainable purchasing, procurement, food service operations, supply chains, and sustainable seafood. This event will highlight the importance of local food initiatives, and encourage restaurants, hospitals, schools, colleges, and universities to help our region produce at least 50% of our food by 2060.
This event is online and free of charge. REGISTER HERE
