The Robert C. Byrd Institute is hosting a free luncheon Sept. 13 from noon to 1:30 at RCBI Huntington (1050 Fourth Ave.) that focuses on creating new, local food businesses. We will explain West Virginia food laws and farmer’s market guidelines so you can be sure you are doing everything right. You also will learn about new creative spaces in Huntington and the ever increasing demand for local food. Starting a food business has never appeared as appetizing as it is now. Representatives from RCBI, the West Virginia Department of Agriculture, Unlimited Future and the Wild Ramp also will discuss possibilities in this developing segment of our agricultural economy. Because lunch will be provided, participants must register at www.rcbi.org/go/aglunch no later than Friday, Sept. 8, at 3 p.m.
