About Quench Magazine Writers' Fund

Quench Magazine is the longest-running food and drink magazine in North America and we know the importance of remaining an independent publication to guide Quench through its next evolution.

Over the years, we have been committed to amplifying voices and bringing attention to the people and issues that have long been ignored in our industry. We will continue to tell the stories that need to be told, the way they should be told, by the people who should be telling them.

We will continue our focus on the historical and cultural context of wine and food, and we will incorporate more coverage of culture and art because a food and wine lover’s passion also dives deeply into music, art, literature and experiences that elicit emotion and spark discussion.

We will continue to explore the niches that most other magazines ignore, and contribute to and drive positive and systemic change, but we need your support.

Your generous and sustained contributions will be dedicated to hiring more talented underrepresented voices and to provide opportunities and mentorship to young writers and storytellers.

We are committed to making a difference; to making food and wine accessible, engaging, relevant and enjoyable for all audiences; and to respecting the stories, the story tellers and the readers. Every contribution will make a difference. Join our journey.
