What draws us to work in food systems? How have our personal trajectories informed our work up until now? In what ways are we connected to food systems, and what does that mean for our work? This session will draw out the personal narratives we each hold, and will work to build a better communal understanding of what unites us in our work towards a healthier and more just food system.
