FoodChat Questions

Chuck Zimmerman

Last night was the monthly FoodChat conversation on Twitter. It was the first time I’ve moderated one of these. Although I saw some familiar “faces” it was mostly a new group than who you’ll find on AgChat. Thanks to everyone who participated. It ran very smooth and Twitter cooperated and that always helps.

The whole conversation will be archived on the AgChat Foundation website and you’ll be able to find answers to these questions:
