People's Food System Summit

We are excited to announce that Equal Exchange is hosting our first-ever People’s Food System Summit (PFSS). You are an integral part in making this event a success. The PFSS aims to create a space for Action Forum members, Equal Exchange worker-owners, and farmer partners to network, connect, and work together toward the creation of a people’s food system. This year we have begun to sow the seeds for a grassroots movement to build a truly democratic food system, and we need your participation.

WHAT: This will be the first-ever Equal Exchange People’s Food System Summit and gathering of the entire Equal Exchange community that connects all parts of our supply chain. Our goals are to organize Action Forum members, farmer partners, and worker-owners together in this physical space.

We will be hosting workshops, a roastery tour and cookout at our headquarters, and we will make plans for how we can organize to take back control of the food system, together.

WHERE: Stonehill College in North Easton, MA and Equal Exchange Headquarters in West Bridgewater, MA 

*Food and accommodation will be provided by Equal Exchange on Thursday, June 8, and Friday, June 9.

Stay tuned for speaker announcements and interesting ways in which Action Forum members can help be a part of this event. There will be more details to come regarding logistics and the event schedule.
