Connection is where the potential for change happens. TFN ‘connects’ in different ways. We love to connect dots! We set context and follow the threads from big structural frameworks to personal impacts. We connect people and communities, and provide opportunities for reciprocity and the cross-pollination of ideas and resources.
Two programs of The Foodshed Network through which we ‘Connect’ are
The Foodshed Forum (TFF) and Greenwich Food Alliance (GFA).
The Foodshed Forum (TFF) is a program of TFN, in partnership with Greenwich Conservation Commission.
TFF's multi-platform educational and convening initiative. Our integrated programming amplifies community-based organizations working towards food system transformation in Connecticut. We bridge initiatives throughout Fairfield County, and beyond, by strengthening the connections between those with the means to support an equitable, resilient and regional foodshed with those who are reshaping the system at the grass-roots level. The TFF platform facilitates the exchange of ideas and best practices among food system stakeholders.
In 2022 The Foodshed Forum (formally Greenwich Food System Forum) produced a six-part educational webinar series that engaged 25 food system thought leaders throughout the region. In 2023, TFF is planning a CT Farm Tour, a cultivation event with Eating with the Ecosystem
and Farm to School webinar. LEARN MORE HERE.
Greenwich Food Alliance (GFA) is a program of TFN, in partnership with the Greenwich Sustainability Committee's Food System Sector.
GFA is an alliance of educators, businesses, agencies, community members, non-profit organizations, and municipal leaders. GFA works together to advance Greenwich's food system initiatives through leveraging inspiration, knowledge, and networks. Our connectivity helps us to identify issues, strategize solutions, overcome barriers and support each other. The alliance represents,
and gives voice to, a Greenwich food community with a shared vision of an equitable and resilient local food system.
