By Curtis Ogden, Interaction Institute for Social Change; Jennifer Obadia, Health Care Without Harm; Ellen Kahler, Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund; Whitney Fields, Indy Food Council

Collective impact as an organizational framework is gaining in popularity amongst food system advocates. Groups such as food policy councils may consider using the collective impact approach, which entails groups from different sectors working together with a common agenda and indicators of success to solve a social problem. This webinar discussed the collective impact approach, the conditions under which it is most successful, and its potential application for food policy councils. Panelists also shared examples of how collective impact is being used at different geographic scales to affect food policy. This webinar was sponsored by the Center for a Livable Future and Chesapeake Foodshed Network.
