How Do We Match Local Farmers with Buyers?

February 20, 2017, 12:00 PM

Free

Camden-based digital entrepreneur and founder of Foodlack Arif Shaikh spent three months going to every local food market he could to find out how farmers connect with buyers. He learned that farmers spend a lot of time they don’t have literally knocking on doors, making endless phone calls, or sending mass emails. By creating Foodlack, Shaikh has made it his goal to build an online platform that more efficiently makes these important connections. Join us to learn about his efforts to alleviate local food distribution issues in Maine and beyond. Pizza and other refreshments will be served.

Sponsored by the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement.
