Food Forward is excited to share the word about our next public forum, a Town Hall on Unlocking Toronto's future good food jobs, and is looking for your support to make it a success.
Description: The forum will feature some of the Toronto's leaders in innovative food business, including farmer's markets, street food, food trucks and other local ventures and food security opportunities. We will be looking at the possibilities and also the barriers to promote a more open and interesting toronto food scene, including municipal regulations and related advocacy for change. There will be significant opportunity for audience discussion, which will identify opportunities for future action.
The Town Hall will be followed by Foodie Drinks, our regular event which brings together food enthusiasts with good food businesses and local food non-profits to discuss a growing sector and networking opportunities. We could use your help in covering event preparation costs and promoting to those who may be interested.
For non-profit organizations: We are looking for your endorsement of the Town Hall. This simply means you support our goal in working work toward more good food opportunities in all parts of the City, using good food business as a lever for societal change, and public discussion of these ideas leading to effective change. We will list your organization as an endorser in our eevent promotions, and will ask you to promote it in your usual channels.
For small and medium sized businesses: We are interested in hosting Presenting Sponsors for the Town Hall at a donation level of $250. A business interested in this sponsorship would be recognized as such at the event and in all event promotions, with a description of their businesses and products/services, along with a change to mingle with guests afterwards. Promotional material may be handed out, and you will be recognized as well through our popular social media channels, and be provided an annual membership in Food Forward.
As our intention is to support small businesses that have created jobs and are working to making a difference in good food, we have also created a low cost entry point, considering scale of potential partners interested in becoming event sponsor. Our other sponsors will be thanked, promoted and linked to in event advertising and social media. As a special offer, with a $60 contribution towards the Town Hall, we will provide a one-year annual membership, which includes an ongoing spot in our Toronto Directory of Good Food Businesses.
