    Reflecting On Our First Year

    With Gratitude

    As we reflect on the past year, our team is incredibly thankful for the support that has helped us achieve so much in such a short time. With a clear mission serving as our guide, we have established a group of dedicated Board Members and a Circle of Advisors, earned 501(c)(3) IRS status, built a robust website, secured two grant awards, joined the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine (AIHM) as an Organizational Member, launched an Ambassador Program resulting in the production of our Nourishing Communities series, and published our first Impact Report.

    Our LinkedIn network has grown to include over 3,600 professionals, and the Food as Medicine Global Resource Directory and Online Community Site have become valuable resources for connecting and exchanging information. Additionally, our Letter to the Editor responding to the editorial by Kathi J Kemper - Food as medicine: Health professionals promoting victory gardens in light of climate crisis - was published.

    The highlight of our year was the success of our four-day eco-friendly online global conference. We were grateful to welcome 478 registrants and over 60 speakers from eight different countries. The inspiring program featured the often unheard voices of people working at the intersections of food, health, social justice, community, and planetary well-being. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and grant funders, we were able to offer conference scholarships to over 200 attendees and provide honorariums to 13 keynote speakers.

    Looking ahead, we remain committed to being in respectful collaborations while offering both online global events and in-person regional opportunities that support community efforts to advance food sovereignty and health justice for all.

    As the new year approaches, we wish you and your loved ones a joyous and peaceful holiday season. Thank you for your support!

    Post Conference Thank you Letter

    Dear Community,

    When Food as Medicine Global decided to host its first conference, we wanted to extend an invitation everywhere - to unite agriculture and medicine to support food sovereignty and health justice for all. We wanted to create an event where we could truly join together in advancing an equitable and inclusive food as medicine movement.

    After four days of an incredible program featuring speakers and leaders from various parts of the world and participants joining from different backgrounds, life experiences, and time zones, and message after message of how this impacts participants, we are hopeful that our intent for this event actually occurred.

    Each presentation offered a unique perspective and provided strength to drive the food as medicine movement forward. What we learn from each other through events like this is how to be more mindful in honoring each other's contributions and to respect the wisdom and experiences of all people - especially Indigenous peoples, whom we center in our efforts; and how we continuously improve the way we define and do right by "inclusion," "belonging," "accessibility," "equity," "justice," "diversity," "decolonization," and "sovereignty."

    We were invited to pause, think, be present, be mindful, slow down where it matters, and speed up our efforts fiercely yet compassionately in other ways, too.

    From our conference attendees...

    “This was easily the most valuable conference I've ever attended. The amount of information was incredible, and the speakers were diverse and experts in their fields. It provided an unbelievable lineup of speakers. I couldn't stop taking notes the whole time because there was so much information to learn. It was a truly wonderful experience, and the community represented at the conference was welcoming and interactive. This conference was absolutely worth the price, and I fully intend to attend next year."

    "I was impressed with the incredible diversity of both speakers and presentations, as well as the depth of knowledge that they brought to the table. I was left full and inspired to weave Food as Medicine into the work that I'm doing."

    "This conference is a must as it brings together the many voices and a very diverse community of practitioners, scholars, educators and healers from every corner of the world. I enjoyed learning about the indigenous community food choices and how they use food to heal their wounds and trauma. This is so important in todays environment to bring to light the power of natural foods as mother nature intended them. A very informative conference, very inspiring and healing. Thank you for offering this opportunity."

    "The Food As Medicine Global conference was very well organized and informative. The global connection with speakers from around the world was heartfelt and inspiring. It contained a message of hope and LOVE!"

    "The conference exceeded my expectations in ways unimaginable. I met people with whom I was at home immediately. I felt we created a home-space for this essential work."

    Thank you to the inspiring presenters who shared their time, expertise, and experience with us! Thank you to all the attendees for participating with an open mind and heart! Thank you to our supporters and sponsors whose generosity and encouragement made this event possible! Thank you to our Board Members and Circle of Advisors for guiding us! Thank you to Dr. Patricia StandTal Clarke, Melina Meza, and Dr. Griffin McMath for an abundance of live event support!

    It is an honor to work with all of you, and all those you will invite to unite in this purpose.
