Our Mission

Empower the Movement

The body of evidence from health & wellness research studies, combined with powerful documentary films such as Food, Inc., Fresh, Food Matters and The Gerson Miracle, have spawned a hyper-local, highly-informed, “Social Food Movement” among U.S. consumers. The Movement demands a humane, sustainable, safe and localized food system that is better for the animals, the environment and the eaters.

Mission_Sustainable

We pledge to drive the Social Food Movement by enabling local food providers to compete fairly and profitably in the marketplace through online and offline social communities.

We pledge to empower the consumers with information throughout the entire “Arc of Engagement” with meaningful social learning experiences in the pasture-to-plate food path.

We pledge to act influentially in local, regional and national political circles to catalyze positive changes in sustainable agriculture to reduce environmental damage and eliminate animal abuse from our food system.

Our Mission

To meet the demands of a new food movement and empower the entire local, fresh food system to create a more sustainable environment, content animals and a healthy population for generations long after ours is gone.
