Rural grocery summit scheduled for June 5-6 in Manhattan
Seasonal weather can make travel hazardous, if not impossible; driving also can be compromised by an injury, illness or the aging process.
Either way, access to food is limited — and a health issue, said Procter, who encourages interested parties to attend the K-State rural grocery summit: “Strengthening Our Stores. Strengthening Our Communities.”
The summit is scheduled June 5-6 at the Hilton Garden Inn Conference Center in Manhattan. It is recommended for rural and neighborhood grocery store owners and managers; local government officials such as city and county commissioners, community economic development agencies and volunteers, potential funders, grocery distributors and concerned citizens.
