A portion of the proceeds from this year’s Farm to Table Dinner will be donated to The Food Trust. After learning about the mission of this wonderful organization, we were excited to get involved.
This mission of The Food Trust is this:
The Food Trust strives to make healthy food available to all. Working with neighborhoods, schools, grocers, farmers and policymakers, we’ve developed a comprehensive approach that combines nutrition education and greater availability of affordable, healthy food.
This organization has been in the spotlight for their great work.They were recently named among the top five “high-impact” nonprofits working in the field of health and childhood nutrition. This survey of more than 100 experts working in the field of health and childhood nutrition was conducted by Philanthropedia. Time Magazine calls The Food Trust’s Programs a remarkable success “…increasing the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables in elementary schools, along with nutrition education, is credited with helping reduce the incidence of overweight students by 50 percent.”
