Welcome To FSLN

Welcome to the Food Systems Leadership Network!

What is the FSLN?

The FSLN is a national peer learning community that connects current and emerging leaders, strengthens individual and collective leadership capacity, and fosters collaboration across communities. The goal of the network is to accelerate the realization of a just, equitable, and sustainable food system that generates good food, health, and opportunity for all. Click here to learn more.

The FSLN is facilitated by the Wallace Center at Winrock International to serve and support the growing community of organizations, businesses, and public agencies involved in building a good farming and food system in the United States. 


The FSLN provides many ways for you to discover and build relationship with hundreds of other food systems leaders across the country.


Dive deep into the resource library filled with online courses, webinars, toolkits, and hundreds of learning resources on topics ranging from food safety, to nonprofit management and ops, to value chain coordination.


Explore opportunities to grow as a leader and change-maker through FSLN Systems Leadership Retreats, Mentorship Programs, Technical Trainings and Peer Learning opportunities.

It’s so nice to be in a room with shared values and understanding that this work is bigger than food. It’s nice to have a group of people who are working on food and social justice across the country – I feel comfort in knowing we’re all out there doing the work.
