HASTINGS, NEBRASKA – Aspiring food business owners are invited to a free panel discussion on Monday, Nov. 18, in Hastings. This event will be presented in both Spanish and English, and is sponsored by the Center for Rural Affairs.

“Table of Experts: How to Start a Food Business” will take place from noon to 1 p.m., at Hastings Public Library, Room A, 314 N. Denver Ave., in Hastings, Nebraska.

“Explore turning your food business dream into your own catering business, restaurant, food truck, or bakery,” said Lucia Schulz, Center for Rural Affairs project assistant. “During this discussion, you will hear from a food business owner, and about local resources to support those who would like to open their own business."

Topics on the agenda include start-up planning, regulations, licensing and inspection, and funding and taxes.

To register, contact Schulz at 402.750.5727 or lucias@cfra.org.
