Use this platform to share your stories and resources, sharpen your skills, build organizational capacity, and connect with your peers.

Below, you'll see an overview of each major component of the FSLN platform.

We have also created some documents to help guide your experience as a member of the Food Systems Leadership Network:

  • This "How-To" document provides more direction on how to set up your profile, what it means to be an organizational partner, how to post an opportunity or event, and more
  • This calendar will help you stay on track of important FSLN dates and deadlines
  • This FSLN Handout gives a bit more background on the FSLN as well as a summary of the different offerings 
  • FSLN Launch Webinar
  • FSLN Launch Webinar slides


Within the Stories section, we hope that you'll share both programmatic challenges and achievements as well as your own experiences working in food systems change. You can use this space to upload tools and files that you have developed or have found useful in your work that you'd like to highlight and share with others. You'll also find podcasts, videoblogs, and additional stories from around the network. Use this space to engage, inquire, and inspire! 

Discussion Groups

In this section, you'll find different groups arranged by thematic area. Upon joining a group, you will be able to communicate with other group members, access, and share resources, and explore the different courses and opportunities relevant to that group's main focus. You will be able to upload files and tools that are specific to the group's topic here. Use this space to dig deeper into specific topics like non-profit management and operations, systems leadership, program innovations, and racial equity and inclusion. 


Ever feel like you find out about a conference, event, or training after it happens?! Here, you'll see upcoming opportunities and be able to access online courses and webinar series. Member organizations can share events that they're hosting and we'll continue to post educational courses and learning series, like our Non-Profit Boot Camp series or Food Hub Finances series.


In this section, you will find individual and organizational development opportunities. Individuals will have the opportunity to apply for Professional Development Scholarships, the Community Food Systems Mentorship Program, and to attend Food Systems Leadership Retreats, while organizations can apply for Organizational Capacity Building Mini-Grants.
