Good afternoon,

While we are unable to meet in person or come together at conferences and events, Heifer International President and CEO, Pierre Ferrari, along with other Heifer International leaders and experts, hosts live virtual chats with leaders in development, agriculture, philanthropy, impact investing, government, and more to discuss how the international community should respond to COVID-19 during and following the pandemic. With the current crisis revealing gaps in the global supply chain, it is critical to invest in small-scale farmers around the world to build more resilient, sustainable food systems that can ensure global food security. View the list of all upcoming chats and past recordings here:

Today, May 26th at 1pm EDT Pierre Ferrari will speak with founder of impact investment fund Acumen, Jacqueline Novogratz, on how long-term investment in small-scale farmers can transform the food system.
