Often grant models are inequitable, driven by funders requirements and needs for data, evidence-based practices, and their lack of appetite to fund what they deem to be risky. What we do know from grassroots food justice leaders are that the projects many funders deem risky are the exact ones that are driven by community and have the potential for the greatest change. But who determines what change looks like? Who is defining success? How are the mechanisms of the who and what within the traditional grant making model hindering or accelerating the achievement of nutrition equity?

Join a panel of Nourishing Power Network members as they reflect on insights gained through developing the first round of the Nutrition Equity Fund. Hear about the steps they took to “bake equity” into the Fund design, lessons from implementing the first round of funding, and what are the experiences like being a grantee of the Nutrition Equity Fund.

Panelists:

  • Lindsey Lott, BS
  • Shawn Brown, JD
  • Tanisha Velez

Moderated by Dr. Shannon Walker
