The 10th annual Southwest Marketing Conference will be held in Rio Rico Sunday through Sept. 18.
The conference will encompass a border food summit, with the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona as top sponsor.
Gary Paul Nabhan, of the Sustainable Food Systems program at the University of Arizona, says the conference will give the community a chance to eat healthy foods and realize that each person plays a part.
"Each of us has our part. It can't just be the farmers thinking about this or the big food companies. All of us have to be engaged in this and all of us will benefit in the changes," says Nabhan.
