Truman's agricultural sciences department and the University of Missouri Extension are sponsoring Food Fest. This event showcases locally grown food and informs the public on what foods are available from local producers, and about the advantages of buying and eating locally grown foods. It is held in conjunction with the Kirksville Farmers' Market.

Local producers will be displaying and discussing their products as well as providing free samples. There will also be cooking demonstrations by local community members and youth.  The first cooking demonstration begins at 10 a.m. and the second demonstration will begin at 11:30 a.m.

Door prizes will be given out throughout the event. Information on a variety of topics including food saftey, nutrition, horticulture and sustainable agriculture will be available.
