The goal of the Urban Food Systems Symposium 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, to be held June 22-25 at the Kansas State University Olathe campus in the metropolitan region of Kansas City, 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.
