From October 6 to October 8, 2013, The Food Project intern Phillip Nguyen traveled with North Shore Programs and Community Outreach Manager John Wong to the three-day youth summit, Diversifying the Future of Food. Here is what Phil would like to share with you from his trip.
My trip out to Missoula, Montana was amazing. Before heading out to the Diversifying the Future of Food Youth Summit, I had no idea what to expect, nor did I know where Montana even was. From the very first hour after arriving, I learned about the sustainable practices that the University of Montana has been putting into practice, including using food from their own campus garden and working towards having only local foods in their cafeteria.
