Two-year Paid Castanea Fellowship

At Castanea Fellowship, we champion new patterns of a just, healthy, and equitable food system by investing in extraordinary leaders. We provide leaders with space to source new ideas, engage in peer-to-peer learning, forge alliances, and most importantly, unearth reflective practices that increase resilience and provide a renewed sense of purpose. By giving all food system leaders opportunities to rejuvenate, and centering Black, Indigenous, and other leaders of color, we help combat further erasure of knowledge, priorities, and practices of BIPOC communities that are so essential to reshaping narratives, thereby eliminating systemic barriers, shifting power dynamics, ultimately creating the conditions for a more just and equitable food system for all. We’re ready to support leaders working for a racially just, culturally rooted, sustainable, and healthy food system for all communities. If you’re a leader with more than five years of experience in the food system, we hope you consider applying! Learn more and apply here https://www.castaneafellowship.org/apply/
