Boston Food Systems Tour
Join us for a bus tour of Boston, our APHA Annual Conference host city, where community groups, businesses, academics and advocates are working towards creating a more just, healthy food system.
Not only will you be inspired by what you see, but the tour is a great opportunity to network and get to know diverse colleagues interested in food systems and public health, as well as a chance for those new to APHA to come into the conference with some connections already made!
Saturday, November 2nd, 11:00am to 4:30pm
Bus leaves from the Convention Center to explore the following organizations:
**Community Servings: A food and nutrition program delivering healthy meals and more to homebound clients (http://www.servings.org/index.cfm).**
