We also believe in bringing the voices of farmers into the broader conversation about food system change, which is why we’ve featured farmers at every one of our Food Tank Summits.
In Washington, D.C. in 2015, we hosted a panel on Family Farmers Creating Resilience in the Food System; in 2016, the second annual Washington D.C. Summit featured a panel on Farmers Leading the Food Movement; our 2016 Summit in Sacramento, CA, Farm Tank, was centered around farmers, farming, and agriculture; and the final 2016 Food Tank Summit in Chicago included a panel on Farming the Future. We’re planning our 2017 Summits now and farmers will once again be joining us on stage.
