MS Food Summit & Agricultural Revival [MS]


  • MS Ag & Forestry Museum Jackson, MS

This year, the second annual MS Food Summit will be bigger than ever and include film screenings and a music festival as well as workshops, panels, speakers covering all aspects of food and farming and so much more. Each year, farmers, health practitioners, market managers, chefs, legislators, students, teachers and local food advocates come together in Mississippi for our Mississippi Food Summit.  They share successes stories, problem-solve barriers, provide opportunities, and discuss issues that connect their diverse specialties to the fundamental necessity that we all have to eat and right now our food system is not reflective of our priorities – which is a truly equitable, sustainable, and localized food system. With the ultimate goal to educate, inspire, and empower one another the Mississippi Food Summit is truly a one-of-a-kind gathering that has something for the whole family. This year, the Summit will include;

  • Full-day & Half-day Workshop Intensives    
  • Food & Agricultural Policy Town Hall Forum
  • Film Screenings & Photography Exhibits      
  • Farmer Mixer
  • Sustainable Futures in Food & Farming Conference        
  • Farmers Market & Vendor Fair
  • Busy Bee Children’s Tent
  • Common Ground Youth Congress
  • Till Tomorrow Music Festival
  • Local Farm Tours  
  • Small Town Harvest Fest … and much, much more!
