Kansas Group Plans Food Summits

KSAL StaffJune 18, 2014

A nonprofit group that supports small farms in Kansas will hold two public “Farm-to-Fork” summits next week.

The Kansas Rural Center says the events will take place June 24 at the American Legion in Concordia and June 25 at the Colby Community Building in Colby. Both run from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Author Jane Marshall will speak in Concordia about the culture of food and farms in Kansas. Her book, “Teatime to Tailgates,” includes stories and recipes dating from 1863 to 2013.

The Colby meeting features Chris Sramek, co-founder of the High Plains Food Coop, an online food purchasing cooperative that mostly serves the Denver metro area with Kansas products. He plans to talk about the cooperative’s development, its challenges and future opportunities.
