Are you one of the early birds at the farmers market or someone who pulls over to support the many roadside farm stands scattered across Warren County? Are you a proponent for local foods and supporting family farms and local businesses? If you answered yes, then the Warren County Local Foods Celebration and Public Forums are the events for you!

These events are being hosted by the Warren County Local Foods Promotion Council on two dates: Tuesday, May 15th from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM at the Warren County Senior Center and Thursday, May 31st from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM at Buck Spring Park. The purpose of these Forums is to show how Warren County citizens can get involved with the LFPC, to spread the knowledge of local food and farm leaders, and to collect ideas from the public about what kind of local food system they would like to see in Warren County.

In addition to refreshments, live music and door prizes, the forums will feature a panel of farmers, community leaders, entrepreneurs and others. These events are free and open to the public. Please RSVP by calling 252-257-0205 or register on-line at http://go.ncsu.edu/warrenfoodforum. If you cannot attend, but would like to stay connected through our email listserv, please let us know.

The Warren County Senior Center is located at 435 W Franklin St, Warrenton, NC and Buck Spring Park is located at 217 Nathaniel Macon Dr, Warrenton, NC.
