Providing economic opportunity, food security and a safe environment for future generations requires leadership at all levels of society. Winrock has long made it a top priority to equip emerging leaders, particularly women and girls, with the skills, opportunities and networks of support they need to succeed in their communities and beyond.
The National Good Food Network (NGFN) brings together people from all parts of the rapidly emerging good food system — producers, buyers, distributors, advocates, investors and funders — to create a community dedicated to scaling up good food sourcing and access. Local food is nutritious and good for both the environment and the economy, and has propelled the growth of regional food economies. The NGFN showcases the benefits of moving local foods from their roadside beginnings into the mainstream.
