Laying the groundwork for equity in the revitalization of the Mid-Atlantic Grain Economy

The Mid-Atlantic has a history of growing grain for food, but these crops are largely absent from its food system today. The Common Grain Alliance (CGA) is the key advocate for reviving food grains in this region. As a new non-profit, the CGA has an opportunity to address food system inequity by developing systems that increase access to the high-quality staple foods it promotes. It is also committed to providing farmers their due by increasing the value (and therefore the price) of what are now undervalued commodity crops. Thus, this session will leverage the collective experience in the room to develop strategies that occupy the common ground between these two seemingly conflicting goals.
