Meet our 2023 Keynote Speaker and founder of Food For Thought Alaska

Ziona Brownlow is the founder of Food for Thought Alaska(FFTA), a mutual aid organization on Dena'ina lands, filling gaps in our local food distribution systems while cultivating community along the way. Born and raised in Anchorage, Ziona uses lived expertise to find innovative responses to community needs and hopes to inspire others to care radically without waiting for permission.

Food for Thought Alaska originated in 2018 as a local food blog written by Ziona. The FFTA blog and social media presence promoted the empowerment of the Anchorage community’s dollar vote by highlighting small, locally owned, businesses and their stories. It has since grown into a grassroots cooperative with the mission to feed neighbors, increase awareness of food insecurities in Alaska, and amplify community voices
