About the NGFN Conference
Since 2012, the Wallace Center has been convening leaders from across the good food movement for a comprehensive, practitioner-driven conference to share inspirational ideas, build professional connections, and learn practical skills and innovative approaches for creating resilient and inclusive food systems.
At the 2020 NGFN Conference, we are looking to take food systems change and movement building to the next level.
We will take stock of our progress as a movement and look ahead to the future as we seek to break down silos and build collaborative systems-level solutions to answer some of the greatest challenges of our time. Leaders from across the country will gather in New Orleans, LA to recognize and consider the successes and challenges, critically and honestly evaluate current efforts and roadblocks, assess where different approaches need to be taken, and discuss emerging opportunities and challenges we need to prepare for.
Together, we will reflect on where we have been, appreciate gains and impacts, and chart the course for the next ten years of a more healthy, equitable and resilient food system.
With a renewed focus on equity and community development, the 2020 NGFN Conference will expand on the success of previous Conferences and continue to build the capacity of food systems leaders and organizations and inspire innovation through engaging presentations, trainings, networking, and peer-learning opportunities.
We are excited to be partnering with New Orleans-based non-profit Propeller to explore, highlight, and connect with the rich and dynamic food culture of the region throughout the 2020 Conference.
