Florida Food Forums

These provide an interactive platform to inform citizens about the food system, discuss issues they face, and empower them with knowledge and resources. We have produced 31 Forums and 14 in-depth webinars such as Spotlight Interviews and Dialogues with food system experts. Four examples of these forums are (1) Youth in the Food System, (2) Women in the Food System, (3) Black Farmers Matter, and (4) Equity in the Food System. During the pandemic, our Forum reach has doubled.

Education
We host and attend many community events to provide education and outreach. These events include virtual, interactive Florida Food Forums and tabling and speaking at community festivals, town halls, and gatherings.

Since the beginning, we have engaged in community organizing and delivering educational and awareness programs to underserved populations. Our programs allow for connections and cross-pollination of community members around Florida, allowing their voices to be amplified and for them to create holistic strategies for change. We created the Florida Food Policy Scan, identifying 152 policies needing improvement to address hunger within disadvantaged communities. This Scan researched land use policies prioritizing food access and security for communities facing hunger and market challenges. We also provide Florida Food Forums.

Population(s) Served

We create resources for the community to be advocate in all aspects of their lives. Our team is comprised of interdisciplinary experts consisting of academia and community development professionals, farmers, advocates, and policymakers. We created the Florida Food Policy Scan, identifying 152 policies needing improvement to address hunger within disadvantaged communities. This Scan researched land use policies prioritizing food access and security for communities facing hunger and market challenges. Currently, we are creating the Florida Food Policy Toolkit, a resource for those wanting to understand or advocate for food policy. Furthermore, we are completing a Food Policy Scan for the City of St. Petersburg, FL, identifying policies and programs already creating a holistic, regenerative food system and methods for strengthening the city’s policies.

Population(s) Served

This 6-week online certification course will provide tools and knowledge on food, agriculture, civic engagement, equitable food policy, and extreme heat. It will support education and training activities targeted to historically underserved farmers and ranchers. We are also searching for new logos and visual materials. Thus, we are planning an event to engage artists across the state to submit their work to be highlighted on our social media, website, swag, and materials.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
