Our Community

Building a better food system isn’t easy.  And we know we can’t do it alone.  That’s why we try to bring together diverse partners and perspectives as part of a greater community.  Only together can we effect real change.  We hope you will join us.

S2G SUMMIT

The S2G Summit brings together over 300 leaders from across the food and agriculture industry to learn, network and discuss ways to move the food system towards a more sustainable and healthy future. The S2G Summit is an intimate, invite-only and diverse convening of participants spanning industry executives, innovators, and leaders uniquely coming together to propel innovation and advancement across [and beyond] the food system. 

The food and agriculture sector, with the right technology, incentives and partnerships, can help solve two of our biggest global challenges - climate change and a public health crisis.  We see our future vision coming to life through the hard work of entrepreneurs and innovators every day.  But it will take industry partnerships, long-term investment and industry and government collaboration to build and scale a 21st century food system that is healthier, more sustainable, resilient and equitable.
