SAFSF 2010 Annual Forum
June 15-18, 2010
Food. Organic. Recalls. Food deserts. Economic hardship. Healthy school lunches. Farmworker justice. Land stewardship. Energy and Climate Change. Locally grown. Hunger on the rise. Has a week gone by in the last 6 months when you haven’t heard or read something trying to connect the dots in and around agriculture and food systems? These issues are in a spotlight as never before. Efforts over the past decades helped sow the ground from which today’s opportunities have grown. But what next? Will our movement be like the proverbial dog that chased the car, caught the car, and now doesn’t know what to do?
SAFSF believes it is time for the philanthropic community to join together as ‘upstanders’ — persons and organizations who see the need and are taking action to move our agenda forward.
We know our strongest asset is our network of dedicated grantmakers.
Please join us in Philadelphia with your voice, our vision, and your knowledge.
