SAFSF amplifies the impact of philanthropic and investment communities in support of just and sustainable food and agriculture systems, and the SAFSF Forum is the only national gathering for and by funders supporting just and sustainable food systems change. The Forum challenges participants to understand the need for grantmakers and investors to take on risks in order to co-create more resilient, sustainable, and equitable food systems—and at the same time, provides space to cultivate connections with peers so that no one organization is going it alone.

The SAFSF Forum is moving online to bring you the opportunities for real-life learning and peer connection that funders look forward to all year. Spanning two weeks, from July 13-24, the 2020 SAFSF Forum is a curated assortment of thought-provoking, timely, and diverse programming developed by SAFSF funder peers. With a range of workshop and networking sessions offered over two weeks, put together the schedule that works for your learning:
 • Tune in live and participate in dynamic discussions with expert speakers
 • Listen to session recordings at a time that works for you
 • Connect and network with funder and investor peers working across the country

And because the Forum theme and agenda is developed by and for funders who are working on a variety of issues, approaches, and geographies, attendees will leave with inspiration, strategies, and connections for impactful engagement related to their own work within the food system.


The 2020 Forum theme, Fields of Vision: Building on Our Assets for Resilient Food Systems, encourages participants to explore our fields of view by:

• Focusing on immediate critical needs and assets
• Looking beyond our own organizations and localities to build relationships with strategic allies and partners
• Zooming out to map the complex systems and leverage points that will support health, equity, solidarity, and resilience widely and for the long term

Forum offerings will reflect on this theme and be informed by the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on our food and agricultural systems.
