North Carolina Food Council Gathering

Community Food Strategies, an initiative of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems and partnership between several organizations, is hosting a Statewide Food Council Gathering on Nov 30 - Dec 1 for all of the 30+ food councils and their partners across North Carolina.  
This event will feature:
  • Food systems, policy, and community organizing workshops,  
  • Keynote presentation, 
  • Ignite Presentations by several NC food councils, 
  • Resource and Funding Fair, and 
  • Regional and statewide networking opportunities
Join us and nearly 200 other local food council members, local government officials, educators, planners, farmers, food systems advocates, and faculty interested in cross-sector systems change and local food policy!  
Although this event is mostly North Carolina focused, we wanted to share this food council work broadly and welcome your participation.  We are working on ways to share the sessions, keynote, and ignite presentations via Facebook live or other live media.

We are proud to announce Savi Horne of the Land Loss Prevention Project as our Keynote Speaker. Savi is Executive Director of the North Carolina Association of Black Lawyers, Land Loss Prevention Project, a non-profit law firm that has offered for more than thirty-three years of legal representation of clients, community economic development, and professional outreach in the effort to promote wealth, land preservation, and rural livelihoods. As a state, regional and national non-governmental organization leader, Savi has been instrumental in addressing the needs of socially disadvantaged farmers and rural communities.
