Children's Program: Bring the kids! They have their own program from 9:20 AM - 4:20 PM that frees you up to attend the sessions. Conference Kids is for children ages 5-12. Registration is $10 per child and can be done at the door. They will join you for lunch, which is on-your-own at this conference, with lots of opportunities, including bring-your-own. Children under 5 are free and welcome at the SFA Annual Conference, but are the responsibility of their parents.

This program is directed by Katya Wesely, a Program Educator with the Midwest Food Connection and the Urban Bird + Outdoor Collective.


Masks are no longer required at the SFA Annual Conference, due to the venue's change in policy. We will now be following SFA's general COVID policy, which is posted here. Masks will be available and are recommended for those who are not vaccinated or who have extenuating health issues. This policy is subject to change based on changing venue rules and pandemic infection rates.
