We are honored to be recognized by FoodTank as one of the 122 organizations working towards building more sustainable, resilient, and equitable food systems in 2022! To see the full list, you can click here.
FoodTank’s mission is to build a global community for safe, healthy, nourished eaters. They spotlight and support environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable ways of alleviating hunger, obesity, and poverty and create networks of people, organizations, and content to push for food system change.
FoodTank brings food systems leaders together in new and exciting ways, such as through panels, workshops, summits, and even interactive musicals. The Swette Center had the privilege of partnering with them for the Wisdom of Indigenous Foodways Summit in January 2020. The event included many inspiring indigenous speakers that are passionate about indigenous foodways and rights, and connected them with allies eager to support them. The summit “showed that it is important to listen to Native communities, learn from their agricultural practices, and protect their rights to protect the food system.”
