The Seeding Power Fellowship is a program of Community Food Funders and North Star Fund.

Seeding Power is an innovative 18-month, cohort-based food justice fellowship program for experienced leaders working across sectors to build equitable food systems. In this inaugural year we will accept applications from experienced nonprofit leaders whose work touches the food system in New York City,  Hudson Valley, and Long Island.

Please review all details at the Seeding Power website and the FAQs to confirm your interest and eligibility.

To be eligible, you should have significant experience working on food system change, and be in a position to influence a nonprofit organization with similar goals. Your affiliation with the organization can be as a member, staff, or part of the board. If Seeding Power is not a fit, you may want to consider other food-related leadership programs such as the Castanea Fellowship, HEAL's School of Political Leadership, or Wallace Center's Food System Leadership Network. Or here in NY, there is the LEAD-NY program out of Cornell, currently accepting applications until March 1st (and open to participants from NY and New England).
