Note: To help slow transmission of the Coronavirus, GWP has put its in-person gatherings on hold. This session is postponed for the time being and we are working to develop a virtual briefing with SAFSF in the near future. Join local funders investing in food systems for an informal discussion over lunch. This session will provide an opportunity for participants to share about their current projects and initiatives as well as funding priorities in the coming years.

We will also be joined by Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems Funders (SAFSF) staff member, Renee Brooks Catacalos. In addition to sharing about SAFSF’s June 2020 Forum in Kansas City, Renee will describe how SAFSF is mobilizing funders around the current and next Farm Bills, as well as other agriculture and climate change-related legislation at the federal and state levels. She will also provide an overview of their new funder cohorts working specifically on impact investing in sustainable agriculture and food systems, and on getting more philanthropic resources to Indian Country.

We hope you will join us for this opportunity to learn what exciting food systems projects are happening locally and nationally.

Lunch will be served.

We are committed to making GWP programs accessible to all members. If you have questions about the venue, or if an accommodation would be helpful to fully participate in this program, please reach out to Paula or call 412-471-6488 and we will make every effort to accommodate your request.
