MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A three-day conference focusing on local foods is being held in Mitchell this year.

The South Dakota Department of Agriculture says the 2016 South Dakota Local Foods Conference will provide workshops and networking opportunities for producers, local food enthusiasts and resource providers of specialty crops and other niche local food products.

Chef Sean Sherman will be one of the conference’s keynote speakers. Sherman, who was born on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, is a caterer and food educator focusing on modern indigenous foods in the Minneapolis area.

The department says the conference is meant to continue discussions on local foods among producers, growers, consumers, school nutrition programs, grocers, restaurants and others.

The conference is scheduled to begin Nov. 3.
