Newscome to the table conference

This year’s Come to the Table Conference hosted by RAFI will be held in Rocky Mount, NC September 30 – October 1, 2024.

RAFI is a non-profit organization based in Pittsboro, NC. RAFI challenges the root causes of unjust food systems, supporting and advocating for economically, racially, and ecologically just farm communities. Since 2007, Come to the Table has been holding biennial conferences to convene persons of faith, farmers, and community leaders to come together around issues of food access in their communities.

The theme for the 2024 conference is “Food, Land & Sacred Stories,” which will explore these pieces as individual concepts and as a continual thread through the lens of race and equity. With a special emphasis on lived stories, the conference will incorporate storytelling and story-making in several mediums, featuring workshops, panels, farm tours, keynotes, networking events, and more.

Gary Smith will speak on a panel about CUCC’s relationship with the Black Farmers to Churches CSA and Pastor Lacey will be attending as a current RAFI Board Member.

The early bird registration rate is available through July 15.
