Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders (SAFSF), First Nations Development Institute (FNDI), and Melvin Consulting PLLC are excited to invite registration for a new Indigenous Food Systems Community of Practice. Over the course of a year, a group of 14 funders will gather to:
- Interact, learn, and build relationships with Native American practitioners, organizations, and communities offering food systems solutions;
- Share and sharpen their skills and strategies for investing in Indigenous partners who are leading sustainable agriculture and food systems work in Indian Country;
- Build awareness of and respond to the historic, structural, current (e.g. impacts of COVID-19), and philanthropic barriers that Native communities and Tribal governments face in obtaining funding; and
- Enjoy the fellowship and support of other funders committed to investing in Indigenous communities.
Applications will be accepted through the end of the day on Wednesday, May 19, 2021.
