The food systems puzzle contains a striking variety of pieces spanning disciplines, nations, and passions—but they must all fit together to create a cohesive, dynamic whole. We funders—including corporate foundations, governments, community foundations, individual donors, and family foundations—each bring a different perspective to this work, and we also know that we are stronger together.
Some of us use investment dollars to support food enterprise and build new infrastructure and markets, while others convene and build networks to support collaboration and community. Still others take on the thorny transnational issues of seed supply, genetic ownership, trade, and food aid. Our work includes grassroots, community, state, national, and global perspectives. We recognize the value of creative, responsive, and strategic funding.
Working together—whether as partners, collaborators, or cooperators—takes commitment and innovation. At SAFSF’s 2014 Annual Forum in Denver we will explore how the multiple puzzle pieces fit together and how funders and others can work together toward shared goals. Join us!
