We highly value our partners and sponsors. Not only do they support us, but they are part of a larger network that we work with. The Good Food Network is a collaboration between several good food focused individuals and organizations. We work collaboratively because we all have a similar goal; to engage people in their food systems. Read more about the Good food Network here.

The Capital Region Food and Agriculture Initiatives Roundtable Society (CRFAIR) is the organization that we function under. All of our funding, organization, and employees are that of CRFAIR's. CRFAIR is also the founder of the Good Food Network, and an organization that supports several local good food initiatives, learn more about it here. We are proud to be a project within CRFAIR.

The Youth Food Action Team (YFAT) was the original inspiration for the Youth Food Network. Like an older sibling, it came first and continues to play a key role in our development. The YFAT is composed of youth members between the ages of 14-24 that want to learn how to be policy changers/ high level leaders in our food systems.  Our FB and Instagram are under the name YFAT because it is the team of youth that have the first input into the development of the Youth Food Network. In other words, we learn from them and collaborate with them!
