Food nourishes us, it sustains us, it enriches us, and it connects us. The AFPC was founded in 2010 in recognition of the importance of working together to build a healthy food system for all Alaskans. Over the past several years, AFPC has made important strides in helping to meet this critical mission that impacts Alaskans deeply.
And this month, we are asking our members to help us keep working to build a better food system by making a donation
In the past AFPC's work has been supported by government funding. But now as with other important, state-supported projects we have to rely on other revenue sources to continue our work. In 2014, AFPC became its own 501c3 nonprofit and is driven by a committed volunteer Board of Directors with the support of one dedicated AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer.
Thanks to the dedication and collaboration with Alaskans like you, we've been able to:
We need your help to grow this important work. With your valued contribution to AFPC, we will:
- ADVOCATE for policies that support sustainable, local and affordable food choices for our communities while allowing local food businesses to grow.
- CONNECT Alaskans like you through conferences, workshops, and special events like our Town Hall series.
- RESEARCH the Alaskan food system and provide a library of food-related research about Alaska and Circumpolar communities.
Please help us in reaching our goal of 150 Alaskans donating a total of $3,000 to AFPC by September 15, 2016.
Working together, we can make a positive difference across Alaska's food systems.
