Catalyzing connections and collaborations in support of a sustainable, resilient, inclusive, and equitable regional food system in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.DC | DE | MD | NY | PA | VA | WV
Momentum is growing… Come to the table!
The Chesapeake Bay is a national treasure facing a complex situation.
The region is diverse — geographically, culturally, politically, economically.
The watershed is 64,000 square miles & home to 18 million. Agriculture is a crucial industry & the biggest single contributor of pollution into the Bay & its tributaries. Inequality, food insecurity, wasted food, access to land, greenhouse gas emissions, & poor water quality are some significant regional challenges.
Addressing this complexity requires new strategies to learn, connect, & act to advance our regional food system.
The Chesapeake Foodshed Network (CFN) utilizes a network approach based on collective impact to facilitate such strategies.
