A popular event for foodies will not be happening this year.
The board of directors of DigIN, a local organization that focuses on promoting Indiana’s food and agricultural communities, announced that A Taste of Indiana has been canceled. Board President Brian Blackford, says they want to examine the best ways to support the local food communities.
"For 2017, the board has been awarded a grant from The Central Indiana Community Foundation that will enable Dig IN to work with nonprofit consulting firm Hedges and Associates on a new strategic plan," Blackford says. "It is critically important to the board that we focus our time and efforts on this to ensure that our work, now and in the future, supports the local food communities we serve in the best way possible."
DigIN was founded more than eight years ago, and the first A Taste of Indiana was held in 2010.
While A Taste of Indiana will not be continuing, Blackford says they will be looking into hosting new experiences to engage with foodies. He says they want to pursue new partnerships opportunities and new ways to showcase Indiana food.
