Food First featured in 2014 Good Food Org Guide

James Beard Foundation & Food Tank | James Beard Foundation & Food Tank | Oct 27, 2014

The first annual Good Food Org Guide identifies and celebrates more than four hundred US-based groups who are cultivating a better food system.

Food First appears in the “Good Food Org Guide” developed by the James Beard Foundation and Food Tank, along with a prestigious advisory group of food system experts. This definitive Guide highlights nonprofit organizations that are doing exemplary work in the United States in the areas of food and agriculture, nutrition and health, hunger and obesity, and food justice. Only nonprofit, scholarly, and municipal initiatives have been selected in order to spotlight efforts that are focused on community building and engagement, advocacy, and service.

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. The list was determined by distinguished experts, including past recipients of the James Beard Leadership Award and food and agriculture leaders.

“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. This annual guide will be launched at the James Beard Food Conference on October 27th, 2014 as the definitive guide to organizations—national and state-by-state—who are making an impact with their work.
