2022 Come to the Table Conference
March 15 @ 9:30 am - March 16 @ 4:00 pm
The Come to the Table Conference is hosted by the Come to the Table Program of the Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI-USA). RAFI-USA challenges the root causes of unjust food systems, supporting and advocating for economically, racially, and ecologically just farm communities. The mission of the Come to the Table program is to end hunger by developing connections to create a just food system where food is a human right and those who work in the system have ownership and are treated with dignity. We believe that faith communities have a key role to play in this work.
The 2022 conference theme is “Spirit, Power, and Connection: Owning Our Food Future” and will explore the role of connection and agency as crucial steps in building a just and sustainable food system. Workshops will share resources, tools, and knowledge to support attendees in being effective community advocates for a more just food system, provide space for people to connect and build relationships, and energize attendees to go back to their communities with the knowledge to challenge the systemic nature of hunger and the skills and connections to grow structures that are based in justice.
