SAFSF amplifies the impact of philanthropic and investment communities in support of just and sustainable food and agriculture systems, and the SAFSF Forum is the only national gathering for and by funders supporting just and sustainable food systems change. The Forum challenges participants to understand the need for grantmakers and investors to take on risks in order to co-create more resilient, sustainable, and equitable food systems—and at the same time, provides space to cultivate connections with peers so that no one organization is going it alone.

The past two years have exposed the injustices that impact our world’s systems in a new way. The pandemic has underlined the need for sustainable investment, creative collaborations, and fearless mobilization. It’s clear that we need bold and steadfast commitment to build equitable and sustainable farm, food, and fiber systems. We must also be accountable to ourselves, our partners, and each other.

SAFSF invites funders, investors, and food system partners to gather in community in Kansas City, Missouri on June 20-22 for their 2022 Forum: Commitment & Accountability. Join peers for three days of dynamic funder-led workshops, strategic plenary sessions, regional site visits, and deep relationship-building. These extraordinary times require extraordinary action, and sessions will mobilize new connections for global, national, and regional issues like climate change, consolidation, land access, racial equity, and more. Through shared learning and strategic alignment, the forums seeks to inspire attendees to commit to new goals, recommit to visions of a better food system, and cultivate accountability in your work.
