The growth in the interest for eating and growing healthy food is an international trend that suggests that major changes in how we approach food are underway.
In Long Island there is a tremendous interest in raising, cooking, and eating good, healthy, and clean food. As such, Hofstra will host the Long Island Food Conference Saturday, April 25th. I'll list more about the event as it gets closer, but the conference is put on by the North Shore Land Alliance with support from Hofstra. Previously, the event was called the Long Island Small Farm Summit. Given the interest in other areas of food, we decided to rename the event.
