Funding that encourages and supports collaborative work can be hard to come by. The FSLN Activation Grants provide members of the Food Systems Leadership Network with flexible funding to partner together in service of the broader network. Activation Grants harness and amplify the wisdom within the network, build network cohesion, and strengthen our collective capacity for advancing systems change.
In 2022, $22,000 was distributed to five teams of network members to support a range of activities, including webinars documenting and sharing learnings from organizational equity journeys, the development of a multi-racial co-directorship curriculum, and training and coaching sessions for the development of innovative farm-to-market programming.
