Food Tank, an organization that works to promote better food systems, has released, in partnership with the James Beard Foundation, the third edition of the annual Good Food Org Guide. The guide features 1,000 nonprofit organizations that are leading the change towards better and more sustainable food systems. These include projects in kitchens, schools, churches, labs, businesses, community centers, governments, urban farms, fields, food banks, and other settings.
One of the innovations in this year’s guide is an online search tool. Visitors to the website can search for organizations by the region and their focus category. Each organization has its own profile page in the Guide, which includes their contact information, description, logo, social media links, location, photos, and related organizations.
”Working in collaboration with the James Beard Foundation, we are proud to bring the total number of listed organizations to the 1000 mark. It is a testament to the tremendous amount of growth and support we have seen in the ‘good food’ sector,” says Food Tank president, Danielle Nierenberg.
Over the three years the Guide has been published, it has profiled groups who fight childhood obesity, malnourishment and sedentarism. Other groups campaign against food waste, educate consumers on healthy food choices. Social entrepreneurish, indigenous traditions, culture and biodiversity are among the several other action fields readers will find in the Guide, which can be downloaded here.
