About the Food Systems Leadership Network:
The Food Systems Leadership Network (FSLN) is a national peer learning community that connects current and emerging leaders, strengthens individual and collective leadership capacity, and fosters collaboration across communities. The goal of the network is to accelerate the realization of a just, equitable, and sustainable food system that generates good food, health, and opportunity for all.
We heard from two individuals who work at the FSLN, Susan Schempf, and Andrew Carberry. They informed us about the network and what they do to engage programs, leaders, organizations and businesses to work more effectively together.
