Welcome to UFSS 2016

The 2016 Urban Food Systems Symposium will be held June 22-25 at the Kansas State University Olathe campus in the metropolitan region of Kansas City. Our goal is to bring together a national and international audience of academic and research-oriented professionals to share and gain knowledge on urban food systems and the role they play in global food security. This symposium includes knowledge on: urban agricultural production, local food systems distribution, urban farmer education, urban ag policy, planning and development, food access and justice, and food sovereignty.

The 2016 Symposium is a partnership between the Kansas State University Global Food Systems Initiative and Cultivate Kansas City, a non-for-profit dedicated organization that grows food, farms, and community in support of a sustainable, healthy, and local food system in greater Kansas City.

The ideal attendee for this symposium includes:
  • Researchers and students

  • Community Organizers
