As the COVID-19 pandemic, economic turmoil, and rising racial injustice have laid bare, the time for food systems change is now. It is timely that the Pittsburgh Food Policy Council (PFPC) will soon be releasing its first food action plan. With over 750 resident voices and the contributions of dozens of business, nonprofit, university, community, and government partners, the Greater Pittsburgh Food Action Plan is a community-centered set of strategies that prioritize healthy, affordable, and sustainable food for all.
We encourage you to register and attend PFPC’s September 29th virtual community session to learn about their findings and the next steps in advancing a shared vision for food systems change. Participants will hear from frontline leaders working to nourish our communities, protect our shared natural resources, and forward equity across our region’s food system.
During GWP’s briefing on October 6th, we will take a deeper dive into the issues laid out during the community session and learn more about how funders can get involved, align with ongoing efforts, and push forward together.
- This will be offered as a virtual meeting. Connection details will be shared after registration.
- While we recommend that participants register and attend PFPC’s community update as a primer, it is not a requirement for participation in the funder briefing.
