Grants of up to $25,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations for educational and advocacy-related activities that encourage sustainable eating, particularly in historically underserved communities. Funding is intended to raise awareness about the impact of food choices on the environment and to affect change in food choices.

    Grants will be awarded based on the applicant’s ability and potential to uphold and promote these core values:

    • Eating with intention - Support efforts to help people learn more about where their food comes from; how it’s grown, processed, packaged and distributed; and its environmental impact. 
    • Fact-based science - Promote the analysis, understanding, and education about the link between diets and climate change, with a focus mainly on: reduced food waste, plant-based diets, organic agriculture, supporting biodiversity, water efficiency and sustainable packaging. 
    • Democratizing planet-friendly diets - Expand access and demand for planet-friendly diets in historically underserved communities, through improved distribution, pricing, and community engagement.
    • Innovation - Support creative and emerging approaches that help lead to new and effective ways of thinking and eating.
