Snapshot from the field: WhyHunger’s National Gathering

WhyHunger invited 40 food justice activists and organizers participating in our Building Community Power initiative to gather in the beautiful mountains of Patagonia, Arizona, for three days of celebration, sharing and challenging ourselves to understand the boundaries and opportunities of movement building.

Building our individual and collective skill sets, expanding our support networks, and drawing inspiration and motivation from each other’s progress and challenges was all part of our time together. We feel incredibly lucky to work with these folks from across the spectrum of careers and geographies–we can’t think of a better group to learn with, and we are honored to be walking beside them in this movement for a just and equitable food system for all!
