Community Food Funders and the Environmental Grantmakers Affinity Group of the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers are collaborating to host a meeting for NJ funders interested in food system change. Food touches everything. How we grow, harvest, process, package, transport, market, consume, and dispose of our food has far reaching impacts on the health and well-being of individuals, communities, and the environment.
