This year CFF is excited to be hosting our 7th Annual Gathering! Please join us to celebrate accomplishments from the past year and hear from your colleagues about different strategies being used to impact our regional food system. As part of the evening, we will hear from the recipient of the 2019 CFF Champions Award (nomination deadline April 26). You will also have a chance to meet the inaugural Seeding Power fellows and hear an update from the fellowship. The keynote presentation will be given by Dr. Monica White, author of Freedom Farmers, a new book that “reveals agriculture as a site of resistance and provides a historical foundation that adds meaning and context to current conversations around the resurgence of food justice/sovereignty movements in urban spaces.” Whether your focus is on nutrition or hunger, food chain workers or farmland preservation, emergency food or food waste, we all have a part to play in creating the just food system that everyone deserves. We encourage your attendance whether you’re a long-time CFF member or just entering the field of food systems change. Join us at the CFF Annual Gathering for an evening of locally sourced food and drink, networking, and updates from the field.
