On March 15 – 16, 2023 in Rocky Mount we held Community Food Strategies’ signature statewide event which brings together community food advocates from across the state.
A series of meetings with best practices and example activities todevelop a cross-sector group organized to positively impact food systems change.
Learn about eight food councils and community groups engaging in this program and their ideas for ARPA funding opportunities.
From tailored messaging to powerful stories, your words can change minds, touch hearts and make the case for a more fair and equitable food system. Each webinar will build on the previous session and will be followed by a coaching session to work on your lessons learned and put them into practice.
These leading insights came from facilitated conversations with different identity groups during the COVID-19 pandemic. They shared their reflections on the food system, their communities, and what could be different.
To practice equity, and build relationships, knowledge, and accountability, eleven food councils came together to deeply learn about issues, give critical feedback on, and distribute funding for each other’s work through the 2022 Shared Gifting participatory grantmaking.
