Base fee:

The June 13th meeting of the Central MA Funders Network will focus on collective impact to address inequities in the Worcester County food system. We will learn about the creative and research backed ways that are increasing food security.

The conversation will adopt a solutions-oriented lens and focus on the importance and proven value of collaborative approaches. We will hear the most recent data findings on the situation; the services being offered; and accompanying advocacy efforts. Examples of coalitions serving this area, including the Worcester Food Equity Center, Center on Food Equity and Local Food Works Initiative, will be discussed as well.

The meeting is a good learning opportunity for funders who want to better understand approaches to addressing food insecurity in the County and hear about how peer funders are already engaged.

The following nonprofit leaders will join us:
