Transformational Food Systems Philanthropy

January 13, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm EDT

How can foundations and investors seize this moment to shift power that can lead to the true democratization of agricultural production, food systems, and philanthropy?

Presented by: SAFSF

The extraction and concentration of resources––land, wealth, power––by a relative few is at the root of many of today’s agriculture, climate, and food system challenges; the COVID-19 pandemic has only intensified those challenges. Resource concentration is also the foundation of our century-old system of philanthropy and a key feature of our national and global economies. The pandemic has spurred some in philanthropy to shift more resources and power to communities while in rapid-response mode. How can foundations and investors seize this moment to shift power that can lead to the true democratization of agricultural production, food systems, and philanthropy?
