Recognizing that no single organization or person has the reach, resources, or expertise to address every aspect of the regional food system, the Chesapeake Foodshed Network was intentionally created to connect agriculture and food system changemakers to build equity, increase knowledge and empower local communities. CFN is a laboratory for designing and testing community-driven solutions to dismantle racism, democratize governance and leadership, and undertake practical collective action to drive food systems change. We’ll talk about CFN’s pilot projects, how organizations and individuals can engage with the network, and lessons learned for regional food system networks around the country.
