New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and Georgia Farmers Market Association (GFMA) are excited to announce their partnership in putting on the 2019 Community Food Systems Conference to take place in early December 2019 in Savannah, Georgia. The partners will build on the momentum of the 2017 Community Food Systems Conference and GFMA’s Food for Thought Conference. The 2019 Community Food Systems Conference will address common underlying themes between food security, social justice and sustainable agriculture including obstacles in urban and rural environments and fostering community empowerment to create and sustain resilient local food systems.

New Entry released a request for proposals for potential partner organizations to submit their interest as the conference host. New Entry considered organizations in the South, with strong local and regional partnerships and a focus on racial equity in the food system.
