“I see the pandemic as a teacher, it has revealed to us the problems but at the same time, the solution. It has given us the opportunity in this reset to try new things.” - Roberto Meza
Talia Dotson
01:10:35
Resilience looks like reduced food waste, locally sourced food, and neighborhood food co-ops where people are collectively growing and sharing
Peter Williams
01:13:43
Roberto—Wouldn’t it be great if food assistance programs also had metrics to show when fewer people need to be served, not just serving more.
Peter Williams
01:16:02
What if we didn’t need community resilience? There’s a cost, often 13% or more, of traditional funding mechanisms — Zach Ducheneaux
Peter Williams
01:18:22
Non-traditional funding can leverage the capital of capitalism without cost to communities, leaving cash in the pockets of community members — Zach
Cindy Dvergsten, Cortez Colorado
01:19:03
Farmers and ranchers need to be able to operate in a fair market place. Parity has not existed in agriculture since the 1930's. Net income for family farms has been declining and in the last year it was a negative. It is hard to be resilient when you cannot even pay your self a fair wage for your labor.
Yolanda Owens, The Outside (She/Her)
01:19:38
For Roberto-Here in Ohio, the Mid-Ohio Food Collective uses a proprietary system called PantryTrak that helps to track families use of pantry systems. It helps to also connect them with access to other services like federally qualified healthcare. It also shows where "hunger" lives, not just where it is accessing services (often times those that live in the suburban areas are going inner city to access services as to now see folks that they know volunteering)
Reena Cruz
01:20:19
Main message from Zach is invest in producers?
Zach Ducheneaux
01:20:39
Amen Cindy Dvergsten
Zach Ducheneaux
01:21:06
Investment is the answer, not lending, not grantmaking.
Roberto Meza
01:22:16
Hi Yolanda- I would love to learn more about PantryTrak. I am actually from Ohio!
Yolanda Owens, The Outside (She/Her)
01:22:38
We'll connect after this for sure!
VOLUNTEER Kit Brewer she/her
01:28:43
Redefine "profit"?
Rhoby Cook
01:28:58
Terrific Analogy!!
Volunteer_Shannon Maes
01:29:31
What if part of our disaster response was to setup food hubs in communities facing crises?
Peter Williams
01:29:44
Investing in the producers, yes, but also like investing in the soil, there’s a bigger return longterm — paraphrasing Zach
Cindy Dvergsten, Cortez Colorado
01:29:57
A good read; Unforgiven - How we traded our economy for debt and war. Charles Walters. It goes into the raw resource economics and politics behind our current agriculture policy in US.
Zach Ducheneaux
01:30:08
Investment is analogous of long term practices in agriculture where the producers are represented by the soil, improving soil health when done right. Lending extracts capital from the system, like monoculture ag depleting soil health, and grantmaking is chemical or fertilizer, necessary in this system but not the long term solution. ,

Julia Loman (she/her)

What role does vertical integration play (especially of processing) in the vision of community resilience?
Susan DeFreitas
01:33:31
I just want to put it out there that I’m interested in being part of that “crowd-funded regenerative agriculture movement.” I’m interested in writing about it for media outlets as well.
Gary’s iPad
01:33:46
Zack- Thoughts on creating local community investment entities to create capital for local investment. keep in community rather than stock market
Zach Ducheneaux
01:34:54
Here's a picture of our "Food Box" that illustrates our approach. We're paying the producers a fair value, covering our costs, AND getting the product to those that are ordering it.

Zach Ducheneaux
01:35:03
But we're not extracting.
VOLUNTEER Kit Brewer she/her
01:35:10
Maybe who needs to be nonprofits are the lenders--how would they structure themselves to thrive on 6% $ returns? How do they redefine profit?
Zach Ducheneaux
01:36:39
VOLUNTEER Kit Brewer. As we scale our model they'll be forced to compete and become a part of the ecosystem, or wither away like the invasive species they are. ;)

01:37:17
what's stopping us to have a "crowd-funded regenerative agriculture movement"? I've never done crowd funding before, but willing to learn and work with you .
Peter Williams
01:37:43
Circular economy—less money/capital flows out; more flows circularly within—Roberto
