Event Organizers

Muncie Food Hub Partnership. Funded through a Ball State Academic Excellence Grant, the Muncie Food Hub Partnership draws together stakeholders from Ball State, local and regional farmers, government, industry, and non-profit organizations to pursue a regional food policy that synchronizes food and health-related strategies for East Central Indiana.

Purdue Extension – Delaware County. Purdue Extension provides a link between Purdue research and Indiana citizens, providing practical solutions to local issues in four program areas: agriculture and natural resources, health and human sciences, economic and community development, and 4-H youth development.

Ball State Office of Community Engagement. As Ball State’s front door for community partnerships, OCE connects the university with community priorities and initiatives, resulting in more engaged faculty and students; greater prosperity for local residents, businesses, and organizations; and improved quality of life for all.
