Though we may be physically distant from each other as the COVID-19 crisis intensifies, our relationships and connections with individuals, communities, and organizations across the country are more important than ever. This Friday, join us to learn from leaders of national coalitions in the food and agriculture space about the impacts of the current crisis for their members, partners, and communities, and strategize with funder peers about how the philanthropic and investment communities might respond to meet those immediate and long-term needs.
Helen Dombalis, National Farm to School Network
Niaz Dorry, National Family Farm Coalition and Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance
Colby Duren, Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative and Native Farm Bill Coalition
John Fisk, National Good Food Network
Sarah Hackney, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition
Navina Khanna, HEAL Food Alliance
Martin Lemos, National Young Farmers Coalition
Ellen Teller, Food Research and Action Center
During the first hour of this 90-minute video call, national coalition leaders will share brief updates about the wide-ranging impacts of the crisis for our food and agriculture system and communities. We will reserve the final 30 minutes of the call for funders and investors to connect with peers, share strategies and resources, discuss policy responses, and explore potential opportunities for collaboration and alignment.
Registration for this webinar is limited to funders only. Funders are considered those organizations using grantmaking or investments as a core strategy to fulfill their mission and who make grants or invest more than $50,000 annually.
