INFAS is a network of educators and researchers that envisions a US food system that is environmentally sustainable and socially just. We are committed to work together to build solutions towards a more just food system for all people with a focus on those most affected by systemic inequities. We are similarly committed to enabling educational and training opportunities, and sharing and receiving knowledge with future leaders and practitioners in sustainable agriculture and food systems.
These resource pages are ‘works in progress’ as we collectively endeavor to provide useful material for engaged discussion, expand our internal knowledge of systemic inequities, raise awareness within this network and those linked to INFAS participants (current and future), and connect with those that share our vision for a sustainable and just food system.
