Fresno Chapter

Post

Fresno, the fifth-largest city in California, is nestled in the agricultural center of the state. Fresno’s diverse population has nurtured many unique styles of food preparation and sourcing in an area where farm-to-table can take on a direct meaning.

The Fresno chapter gives area members the opportunity to learn, network with other industry professionals, develop relationships with local government and unify to take action on the issues that affect them most .
