Inter-Institutional Network for Food, Agriculture, and Sustainability


The Inter-institutional Network for Food, Agriculture and Sustainability (INFAS) connects food system scholars, educators, and action-researcher activists across the United States. We collaborate to:

  • Catalyze frontier work in food systems research, higher education, extension, and institutional change that we can achieve much better together than by working alone.
  • Increase our capacity to help build U.S. food system resilience, sustainability, and equity.
  • Raise visibility of research-based insights into food system problems and solutions, including increasing racial equity.
  • Diversify who is doing food systems work in academia and in action-focused research, education and extension.

Consider joining us if you do this work and agree with our mission, vision, and equity statement. Membership is free, thanks to a 2010 endowment for this network from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

Members become part of the INFAS discussion email list. Members are also eligible to join actions led by the INFAS working groups in research, education, extension and justice; engage with fellowship/mentorship program partnerships; and participate in INFAS professional development and networking opportunities.
