2023 SAFSF Forum

About the 2023 SAFSF Forum

Join us in Washington D.C. June 12-14, 2023 for an SAFSF Forum like no other, taking place in our nation’s capital for the first time!

Connect in person with community and movement leaders, policy activists and advocates, federal legislators, and other funders who share a vision of an equitable and sustainable food system for all. Dig in to promising solutions and strategies for agriculture and food systems that address the roots and consequences of racial inequities, socio-economic and geographic divides, and community disenfranchisement and disinvestment.

We’ll look at the connections – and disconnects – between the needs we hear from frontline leaders and funding from both federal and philanthropic sources. With two blocks of half-day site visits, we’ll meet with lawmakers on Capitol Hill and get out to see how residents of the capital city are digging into this work on the ground.

Hotel Information

The Forum will take place at the Capital Hilton in Washington DC. Please be sure to select the correct dates for your duration of stay – formal Forum programming will span 3 days starting Monday, June 12 and concluding the evening of Wednesday, June 14. That being said, most attendees will arrive sometime late afternoon or evening on Sunday, June 11.

Your sponsorship of the 2023 SAFSF Forum boosts our power to convene funders across the agriculture and food system spectrum at a critical moment for philanthropy. Your Forum sponsorship enables us to bring in new voices, research, and expertise to our convening, and helps create a supportive and interactive space for all Forum attendees to connect, commit, and collaborate.
