We heard so many inspirational stories of change happening in communities from coast to coast, and we’ve been buzzing with energy and motivation ever since. Here are some of the most memorable moments from the weekend.

This year’s Food Summit featured three action-packed days of programming including tours, program meetups, workshops, and a keynote address. At the end of the three days, we asked the Summit participants for their top takeaways from the weekend. The participants wrote down their most valuable Summit experiences on coloured pieces of paper that they then folded into paper airplanes and threw into the air. Here are the top 6 takeaways from this year’s event.
