Create a lightweight governance model, like the "Constellation Model of Collaborative Social Change", then invite your stewardship group to form. That group defines a strategy that all the partners can understand and participate in, through actions, that organisations cluster around, to achieve specific outcomes.

The assumption is that a radical change in the way food is produced and distributed is required, and nothing short of everyone's involvement will be enough to bring about the scale of change that is needed.
