Join us for the first installment of our Closing the Hunger Gap (CTHG) membership webinar series. In this 90 min interactive webinar with Andy Fisher, author of Big Hunger, we’ll look at some of the challenges of our current emergency food system model. We’ll provide a brief overview of the history of our current charitable emergency food system and examine the tangled relationship between corporations and emergency food providers. This webinar will also look at how hunger has been depoliticized to appease donors and thus separated from its root cause of poverty where the solutions for truly ending hunger lie. Andy will offer his thoughts about creating a long-term vision with an eye towards truly ending hunger. In the second portion of the webinar we will be joined by Robert Ojeda of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, who will talk about how their food bank is shifting towards mobilizing resources and supporting community-based solutions.

Join us for three upcoming webinars about Beginning Farmer Rancher Development Program (BFRDP) grants. These webinars are hosted by Consultant Allison Goin and New Entry Sustainable Farming Project
Once you’ve determined that you’re interested in applying for a grant from the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program, the next step is to design your program. The program design includes all of the key elements of the proposal: what you plan to do and how you’ll do it. In a competitive program like BFRDP, having a well thought-out program design can be the key to setting your proposal a part in the field. Join New Entry and Consultant Allison Goin to explore the basic principles of program design and learn how to apply them to a BFRDP proposal.
