Black Professionals in Food and Agriculture (BPFA)

BPFA has launched a new website ( in time to celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth, BPFA is also now on Instagram, @BPFADC, and Twitter, @BPFADC. Black Professionals in Food and Agriculture was founded in October 2020 to promote the advancement and development of black professionals in the food and agriculture industry. The voices and input of Black policy makers, congressional staffers, and industry representatives are often excluded in the development of policies and programs that serve America’s farmers, ranchers, and producers. BPFA is committed to ensuring those voices have a presence in the room and a seat at the table.
