Thank you for joining us at Change Food and supporting us! We're working on several projects right now, the most important being:


What is the food movement missing? Well....

  • Cohesion. As food startups and businesses become more successful, billions of more dollars are coming into the food space. Those working in this area are completely separate from advocates working toward a good food system. Our events and shows try to bridge this divide.
  • Collaboration. Even groups within the good food movement are not working together. Collaboration, not competition, is what leads to success. Through our events we build relationships across the food sector so we can bring people from all areas together. The group left out the most? Farmers. And that needs to change.
  • Fair Funding. Foundations tend to favor larger nonprofits where a large portion of money goes to keeping the machine running, not in solving real problems. Community groups around the world need more exposure so they can tap into the billions of dollars in funding they are not sharing in. Most community groups work on a shoestring budget and often cannot pay themselves fairly or pay themselves at all.
  • Consumer Confusion. After many years of working toward a healthy, safe, delicious fair food system, consumers are still confused. Our programs work to lessen consumer confusion and motivate consumers to buy the best food for themselves and their families.

How Can You Help and Get Involved??


  • Keep up with Change Food in general by subscribing to our YouTube video shows - Eating Real with Change Food and Food and Farming w Diane - so we can give a larger platform for grassroots groups doing great work but not getting enough attention. You'll also help us go into communities around the country to put on events.
  • Help shape our work by suggesting people, groups and information we should focus on - even places for us to host our events!
  • Follow us on Instagram at @changeourfood.
  • Follow us here on Patreon.  And support us with a $1 a month donation.  Not even a cup of coffee! 
  • And if you're feeling really flush, donate some joy to Change Food. Every dollar counts!
Thank you for doing your part to make the world a better place!

Thanks so much!
