Leading the change in Food Systems

Welcome to the African Food Fellowship

We are building a radical movement of leaders working to transform food systems in Africa. We provide world class training, platforms, and networks to spark collaborative action for healthy, inclusive, and sustainable food systems.

We are supported by Wageningen University & Research, Wasafiri Consulting, and IKEA Foundation.

Become a fellow and join us on this remarkable journey towards a thriving and resilient food ecosystem in Africa!

Food Systems Leadership Programme

Join our programme to gain knowledge and skills in food systems leadership. Guidance from technical mentors, leadership coaches, and systems-change experts.

Country Food Fellowships

Country Food Fellowships are impact networks where inspiring food system leaders connect, learn, act, and belong. We curate these networks to elevate the collective leadership of Fellows during their journey towards food system transformation.

What are Food Systems Actions ?

Food systems actions help people across food systems to collaborate and adapt, driving positive and desired outcomes. Discover the features of food systems actions, and what they look like in practice now!
