a professional association for people working together to strengthen local & regional food systems
We work at the forefront of the food systems profession itself, providing networking opportunities, access to practitioner tools, career guidance, student chapters, webinars, and a curated jobs board for people at all levels of this critical-change work.
NAFSN also creates interactive learning experiences with the open-access, peer-viewed research on community food systems published by our sister program, the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development (JAFSCD).
If you value a diverse and informed workforce at the helm of community food systems, join today.
