About Us

The HEAL Food Alliance was born out of the knowledge that no single individual, organization, or sector can transform systems in isolation. We believe that true transformation requires diverse skills, roles, and resources— and, it requires organizing together for real change.

After an extensive landscape assessment and series of strategy conversations led by HEAL’s founding director, the alliance was born, anchored by the Food Chain Workers Alliance, the National Black Food and Justice AllianceReal Food Generation, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. These anchor organizations engaged leaders with experience and expertise in co-crafting the 10-plank “Platform for Real Food”, and in 2017 HEAL launched publicly with this platform as our strategic compass.

Today, HEAL is a national multi-sector, multi-racial coalition of 55 organizations. We are led by our members, who represent over 2 million rural and urban farmers, ranchers, fishers, farm and food chain workers, indigenous groups, scientists, public health advocates, policy experts, community organizers, and activists. Together, these groups are building a movement to transform our food and farm systems from the current extractive economic model towards community control, care for the land, local economies, meaningful labor, and healthful communities nationwide, while supporting the sovereignty of all living beings.
