Come visit the Healthy Local Food exhibit each year 

at the “Great Minnesota Get-Together!”

Healthy Local Food Exhibit

The theme for 2018 is "Best if Used"!

This year's exhibit, Best if Used, will focus on Food Waste Prevention. The US leads the world in wasting food, with 40% of the food that we produce ending up in the trash! Come visit the Healthy Local Food exhibit to what how you can do to prevent wasted food at your home, school, or workplace. We'll have daily tips, tricks and recipe from celebrated local chefs; food sampling from local farmers and foodmakers; and fun, educational family activities for all ages

The exhibit included interactive and educational to call attention to the many points in our food system where waste can be prevented and to offer solutions to help fairgoers understand how they can help minimize waste all across our food system!

Each year we rely on our wonderful volunteers. Interested in volunteering this year?
