OUR FOOD, OUR PEOPLE, OUR FUTURE
The AFPC is open to anyone interested in improving Alaska's food systems - agencies and individuals representing federal and state agencies, tribal entities, schools, university programs, farmers, fisheries, and food systems businesses. The role of the AFPC is to:
CONNECT: Engage with Alaskans to get input to strengthen our food system, and to connect them with each other to learn and collaborate.
ADVOCATE: Develop recommendations and share them with policymakers at the local, state, federal, and tribal levels.
INFORM: Share information, resources, opportunities, and risks with all food stakeholders (everyone who eats!)
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Membership and sponsor support is critical to our ability to do our work and every donation helps! Recent contributions have been used to support:
• Continued community-focused programs like our recent mini-grants initiative, that granted funds to start-up food projects.
• Developing recommendations and sharing them with policymakers at the local, state, federal and tribal levels; and to share information, resources, opportunities, and risks with all food stakeholders (anyone who eats!).
• Hosting the semiannual Alaska Food Festival and Educational Conference to bring together individuals, organizations, and agencies to connect and to educate each other, and act as a "food system think tank" regarding the work that is being done in Alaska.
• Special events such as the Farmers Market COVID-19 workshop and the new Quarterly Food Systems webinar and quarterly webinars.
