VIRTUAL SERIES I: Food Systems Disruption Opportunities

One thing we have learned during this pandemic, is how volatile the world’s distribution systems are. Everything from food, paper goods, down to the supplies our manufacturer’s need to stay in production. Food is the basic need of life. Food systems effect all communities large and small – metro to rural.

In this hour-and-a-half interactive session, EDCC’s guest experts addressed the pandemic’s effects on our nation’s food systems, its impact on Colorado, as well as techniques and resources available. Attendees breakout into their perspective regions – hosted by CO’s regional food systems representatives – to discuss ways to advance sustainable agricultural practices across production, processing, and supply chains, while enhancing food security in our communities.

  • Betsy Markey, Executive Director, Colorado Office of Economic Development & International Trade (OEDIT)
  • Allison Rowland, Research & Technical Assistance Manager, Council of Development Finance Agency (CDFA)
