Let’s Get To Work With Food Solutions New England
On March 4, the NH Food Alliance (NHFA) hosted "It Takes a Region to Be Resilient: Let’s Get To Work With Food Solutions New England," as part of its 2022 Network Cafe Series. Food Solutions New England's (FSNE) Communicators Director, Lisa Fernandes, presented about two major initiatives of FSNE— the 30x30 New England Food Vision and the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge. Fernandes shared an update on the process of creating the 30x30 New England Food Vision, providing an overview of its major goals, and answered questions about what to expect moving forward. She also shared general information and plans for this year's 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge. The NHFA provided an update from its Racial Equity Team, specifically how the team plans to engage New Hampshire's food system professionals and stakeholders throughout the challenge in April. The Racial Equity Team, in partnership with the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge's Planning Team, will utilize NHFA's May Network Cafe as an opportunity to bring together challenge participants from the New Hampshire food system to reflect on learnings, questions, and concepts.
