October 16 is World Food Day 2020. Pandemics, disrupted supply chains, and exacerbated global hunger has a way of focusing the world’s attention on food.

I would like to extend my gratitude to the World Food Program for its tireless work combatting hunger, as well as a huge congratulations for winning the Nobel Prize! The Regenerative Agriculture Foundation is honored to be sharing the virtual stage on Friday with World Food Program Executive Director David Beasley at Global Minnesota’s World Food Day conference.

In light of the ongoing global crises, RAF will be hosting a panel on regenerative agriculture serving as part of the solution to these issues. We already know that regenerative agriculture plays a crucial role in addressing the climate crisis, supporting farmer income, and generating clean water. The RAF panel will focus on other crucial components of global sustainability – equity, resilience, and sustainable development. We are honored to have A-dae Romero Briones from the First Nations Development Institute, Haile Johnston from Common Market, Jane Maland Cady from McKnight Foundation, and Lauren Baker from the Global Alliance for the Future of Food. 

Please join us this Friday! Registration is free, and the entire day includes a fantastic lineup of speakers. The RAF panel begins at 2pm CST.
