About Plate to Politics
The Plate to Politics program (http://www.wfan.org/our-programs/plate-to-politicssm) is a nationwide effort organized by Women, Food, and Agriculture Network to support and strengthen the national leadership role of women transforming our nation’s food system—from the federal agricultural policy agenda to what’s on our dinner plates. The program focuses on providing leadership training to women engaged in healthy food and farming to take leadership positions—whether on local, state, or federal levels.
