The Alliance’s Annual Report is here!

2020 was a year like no other.

A global pandemic touched all of our lives – and it changed the way people think about food.

We witnessed in real time how fragile and vulnerable our industrial food system is to disruptions. It was the first time in our lives that food supply chains were on the front page of newspapers for weeks.

The pandemic’s impact on our food supply confirmed that the Alliance’s mission is critical – and urgent. Scientists warn that the pandemic is just a preview of the disruptions we will face with the climate crisis.

There has never been a more important time for a powerful Alliance of farmers and eaters.

With member support, the Alliance emerged as a leading voice for local and regenerative agriculture in 2020.

Let us show you how our stewards’ support made an impact in 2020:

Alliance members helped put more power in the hands of farmers with the launch of our farmer caucuses, helped make food and farm issues part of the 2020 election, and helped farmers make big investments that will mean more local food for all of us.
