IOLA, Kan. (AP) -- The upcoming Southeast Kansas Farm-to-Fork Summit this month is focusing on policies to help Kansas farmers make healthful foods accessible and affordable for all residents.

The event is hosted by the Kansas Rural Center and the Allen County Growing Rural Opportunities Works Council. The daylong gathering will take place May 29 at the Fellowship Regional Church in Iola.

It's the second in a series of regional summits across Kansas this spring and summer intended to spur a dialogue about Kansas farms, food and community health. The first gathering last month in Greensburg focused on community food and water policy.

The next summit is planned for June 25 in Colby.
