Speaker Brady Walkinshaw (center) discusses the importance of consumer facing advocacy work of organizations like FOOD ACTION, noting that no one else is currently acting as a "voice" for the food system. Shown here with FOOD ACTION Executive Director, Russell Lehman (right), and Board Chair, Anne Harvey (left).
Speaker Nikki Silvestri of Soil and Shadow spoke about the damage of our current industrial food system on our health and our ecosystem's well being. She argued eloquently for the value of supporting a food system that is healthy, clean, and fair for all.

We had a great celebration of the old and new on Tuesday, April 25th. Toasting to the last 20 years of success as the Washington Sustainable Food and Farming Network and to our future advocacy and growth as FOOD ACTION!
