The Food Connection: Kentucky Local Food Systems Summit

The Food Connection at the University of Kentucky, in partnership with Bluegrass Farm to Table and Kentucky Proud, invites you to the Kentucky Local Food Systems Summit. This day of workshops, networking, and conversation is designed to bring together food systems professionals who work on the front lines of growing our local farm and food systems.

Undergraduate research students are encouraged to submit a poster presentation idea related to local food systems. Local food systems span everything from farm to fork, and they span technical, business, behavioral, and societal aspects. The common link is food produced and consumed by people in a limited geographic area.

How to Submit a Poster Idea 

In one page or less, please include the following:

  • the purpose, activities, and outcomes of the work you would like to present

  • how the work relates to local food systems

  • the presenter’s name, collaborators’ names if any, and the department, group, or

    organization you are affiliated with

  • how you will make the poster visually appealing and interesting to a general audience.
