The Community Food Gathering is Community Food Strategies’ signature statewide event which brings together farm and food system leaders, public service and nonprofit leaders, local food councils, key partners, and community food advocates across the state. 

There will be a keynote speaker, workshops, panel discussions, a story slam, and other creative collaborations to fill our minds and hearts with the nourishment needed to make change.

Workshop sessions will include topics on statewide policy and advocacy opportunities, existing community food solutions, opportunities to support growing value chains and local food system infrastructure, creative communications and engagement strategies, and capacity building for our own and our communities' wellbeing.

The event will be held in-person and will pivot as needed in accordance with COVID-19 public health guidelines leading up to the event.

Desired Outcomes

  • This gathering will honor and lift up place, people, and power shifting.
  • Participants will be inspired by relevant ideas, tools, and relationships for imagination and action toward systems change.
  • Participants will feel joy, connection, creative inspiration, and unexpected rejuvenation.
