Network Groups
Jessica Gorhan at 2022 SWG


We catalyze collaboration to find shared interests, advance policy changes, generate knowledge, and build solutions at the community, state, and regional levels.

Much of this work happens through Action Teams: issue-specific working groups that collaborate to further the collective goals and professional interests of the NH Food Alliance and our network partners. Each team consists of NH Food Alliance network partners, food system professionals, and professionals from other sectors whose work aligns with the issues and objectives of the team.

The action teams below meet regularly, most virtually and monthly, to discuss the specific projects, events, and issues they work on together.  Action Teams are always open to new members and ideas! Contact Nicole Cardwell to get involved with a team or to talk about an idea for a new team.
