In collaboration with the IAPO, Illinois Stewardship Alliance, the Illinois Local Food, Farms, and Jobs Council (ILFFJC), and several other key stakeholders, IPHI held a state-wide “Healthy Farms, Healthy People” symposium to address food access, regulations, food safety, and production/supply issues October 23, 2012, in order to further deepen and strengthen relationships between the public health and local food communities. This is a report from that meeting.
