Food Systems Friday
Food Systems Friday is a live webinar series with over 2500 subscribers founded by Dr. Robin Currey at Prescott College in March 2020 to support our subscribers and their communities as they work to transform food systems. FSF convenes dialogue with the people who can show us and help us learn about policies, practices and models of sustainable food systems and communities. Through the Advanced Food and Agriculture Policy class taught at Prescott College, Masters of Sustainable Food Systems students develop skills to analyze and present policy issues in concise, compelling policy briefs, and to focus advocacy on local policy issues, and food policy councils. Students, embedded in their communities, have used these vehicles, for example, to point out how outdated federal food safety laws and a “one-size fits all” approach to meat inspection threatens the existence of small meat operations and the viability of small regenerative farms and ranches in Colorado, or identifying the policy levers that could permit farmers in Indiana to increase resilience by growing pulses (dry edible beans) adding biodiversity to rotations, soil health to fields and better homegrown nutrition to the state’s food supply. This series is presented by the Prescott College MS in Sustainable Food Systems program and is moderated by Dr. Robin Currey.
