Culinary Conversations, a new MeetUp group serving West Michigan’s food industry professionals (growers, producers, restauranteurs, and others), is designed to strengthen the conversation of the region’s food creator system. Launching in January 2019, Culinary Conversations will offer regularly scheduled MeetUp gatherings that include networking, educational opportunities, and speaker events. The Culinary Conversations MeetUp group is a partnership between the Grand Rapids Downtown Market Education Foundation, GROW, MSU Extension, and Start Garden.
