We’re excited! A new guide from Food Tank and the James Beard Foundation lists over 500 groups working toward change in food and agriculture, nutrition and health, hunger and obesity, and food justice.
You’ll find some real gems in here, whether you’re interested in big issues or equally important (but more focused) organizations devoted to more arcane subjects such as heirloom seed saving and the revival of traditional cooking methods. If you take a moment to scan all 68 pages (well, longer than a moment), you’ll probably find dozens of great organizations you’ve never heard of—as well as a few right in your own neighborhood.
The folks behind the guide say…
The vision and objective of this annual publication is to focus attention on the dozens of nonprofit organizations (listed in alphabetical order, not ranked) who are working in fields, kitchens, classrooms, laboratories, businesses, town halls, and Congress to create a better food system. . . . ‘We hope this guide will serve as a resource for chefs, farmers, students, advocates, and others to find the resources they need about the growing good food movement in the U.S.,’ says Susan Ungaro, President of the James Beard Foundation.”
Wonderful! This is a definitive way to take note of the nonprofits that are working towards progress and change in food and agriculture, nutrition and health, hunger and obesity, and food justice. Whether used as a way orient ourselves in the food movement or to organize for greater collective action, the Good Food Org Guide is a fabulous effort in our progress towards a sustainable food system. Take a look and get inspired!
