2015 Core Grantees

  • Alliance for Fair Food, Immokolee, FL – to support the “Food Chains Consumer Campaign,” which aims to use a new, high-profile, documentary film focused on the battle for farmworker justice to produce action that is capable of bringing more corporate buyers into the Fair Food Program.
  • Center for Rural Affairs, Lyons, NE – to support a strategic, targeted, and visual communications campaign that debunks crop insurance subsidy myths and brings greater transparency to food and farm policy.
  • Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, Minneapolis, MN – to support a communications strategy specifically designed to take the fear out of trade talks and to put the fight into the politicians elected to serve us, the journalists relied upon to inform us, and the activists depended upon in the good food and farm movements.
  • Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance Inc., Gloucester, MA – to support the “Know Your Fisherman” campaign, with a solid communications strategy that lifts up community-based fishermen and emboldens them to take their seat at the food-system and fisheries-policy tables.
  • Pesticide Action Network North America, Oakland, CA – to support the “Food Systems Communicators Collaborative,” which is an effort to harness collective talents and networks to respond to industry spin and proactively communicate powerful messages about sustainable farming.
