Thanks to generous funds from the Initiative for Food and AgriCultural Transformation (InFACT) and others, the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA) is able to offer scholarships to increase the diversity of attendees to "Our Time: Essential Links for a Strong Food Chain," online February 11-15, 2021; see the OEFFA conference webpage for event details. Our focus is on underrepresented participants such as Black, Indigenous, and Latinx people who are or want to be in food system work, such as: farmers, farmworkers, food preparation and service workers, food nutrition and food system advocates, or food and farm educators. Award priority will be given to Ohio residents who have not previously attended the conference.

To apply, fill out this short survey.  Questions can be directed to Renee Hunt: (614) 947-1642, renee@oeffa.org.  Applications will be reviewed as they are received. Scholarships will be awarded beginning the week of January 4.

A note about the online conference: The virtual nature of this event gives flexibility! The conference FAQ section provides details of what to expect.
