On the first Friday of each month, September through April, the NH Food Alliance network hosts an informal and lively conversation with partners across the New Hampshire food system and beyond! Network Cafe topics often leading to further collaborations and projects; turning talk into action.

 

Join us for our 2022-2023 Network Cafe Series!

The 2022-23 Network Cafe Series has a theme: building a climate-resilient food system, based on the “How Do We Build a Climate Resilient Food System in New Hampshire? Six Ways that Sustainable Food Systems Build Climate Resilience” framework developed by the NH Food Alliance and its Climate Action Team. On the first Friday of each month, September through April, we will come together to learn about and discuss the issues within a specific food system sector or topic, in relation to the process of building climate-resilience in our food system. During the first half of each cafe, we’ll hear from organization leaders, policy makers, climate advocates, program coordinators, and many more to learn about their work. The second half of each cafe will be time to network about the work happening across New Hampshire, allowing us to identify opportunities,  resources and potential collaborations.

Working Waterfronts as part of a resilient New Hampshire Food System
Friday, December 2, 12-1PM | REGISTER HERE  

Fisheries are a critical part of a climate resilient food system. The December Network Cafe will feature  New Hampshire fishermen participating in the New England Young Fishermen’s Alliance sharing the challenges and successes they face as stewards of our working waters. Together, we will lean on the fishermans' lived experience to gain a deeper understanding of how the NH Food Alliance network can support this vital part of our local food supply chain through collaboration and further learning.
