Greenwich Food System Forum (GFSF) is a six part educational series that engages thought leaders on the interconnectedness between the industrial food system and our greatest ecological and social challenges; human and ecological health, economic disparity, racial inequity, food insecurity and access, affordable housing and climate change. GFSF amplifies regional advocates and community organizers, who understand the layers of complexity within our food system. Panel discussions explore the ways in which root causes are embedded in policy, practice and mindset, and how a web of networks provide pathways to systemic change. Panelists set context, connect dots, and highlight initiatives focused on equitable community based solutions. 

  have a role to play in reweaving our social fabric. WE have the power to be food system changemakers! Together, we can realize a future that advances a regionalized, regenerative, equitable and just Connecticut food system. Join us.

"We acknowledge that the place commonly referred to as “Connecticut” is located on the occupied and/or unceded traditional lands and waters of Indigenous peoples, and that we have a responsibility to help make that truth visible and to support efforts toward indigenous sovereignty and well-being.” The Foodshed Network
