Young agri-food leaders sought for program

Farm Foundation created Young Agri-Food Leaders Network to engage emerging leaders in food and agribusiness.

Farm Foundation is seeking nominations for its Young Agri-Food Leaders Network, a new program created to engage emerging leaders in food and agribusiness.

The young agri-food leaders will participate in a year-long series of interactive learning and networking experiences, focused on gaining a deeper understanding of the food and agriculture value chain. The program also hopes to help young professionals build a strong, enduring network of peers and mentors in business, farming and government. Up to 10 participants will be sponsored to attend events, engage in virtual conversations and participate in exclusive learning and networking opportunities.

To be eligible for this program, individuals must be a U.S. citizen, between the ages of 25 and 40, be employed in the agri-food industry and show significant leadership potential. Young professionals representing a wide swath of the food/ag value chain from around the U.S. will be selected in order to assemble a diverse cohort. Nominators may be colleagues, business partners or any other person familiar with the Young Agri-Food Leader nominee's career.

The deadline to nominate a young agri-food leader is May 15, 2020. Visit the Young Agri-Food Leaders Network web page for more information and to submit a nomination. For more information, contact Martha King at or (314) 591-8433.

Farm Foundation is an accelerator of solutions for agriculture.
