Diversifying Leadership for Sustainable Food Policy

Posted by on July 7, 2006

Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation – Diversifying Leadership for Sustainable Food Policy (national)

The program goal is to build the capacity of 10 organizations to promote policies that help communities of color benefit more fully from food and agricultural systems. This partnership between the Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation will support the emergence of diverse leadership to advocate for food and agriculture systems that are more responsive to economic, social, cultural, nutritional and environmental needs of diverse people of color communities, achieve specific community benefits, such as increased access to public programs, expanded employment opportunities in food-related industries and better diet and nutrition, and strengthen the sustainable agriculture and community food security movement by connecting it to a broader constituency base.
