#GivingTuesday Grows Food Tank

#GivingTuesday Grows Food Tank

It’s Giving Tuesday, and we have much to be thankful for this holiday season. On this global day of giving, we wanted to reach out to you and say thank you for your interest in Food Tank’s work, and to encourage you to support our movement.

People around the world are developing innovative, impactful solutions for their families, communities, businesses, and schools to fix our food system.

Every day, through millions of small acts, they’re improving how the world produces and consumes food. School gardens are flourishing, teaching kids not only how food grows, but also how to cook and eat with intention. Farmers—from California to sub-Saharan Africa—are recognizing the importance of indigenous, traditional crops for creating resilience against climate change. Constituents are demanding action on food issues, and policymakers are paying attention.

We know you see it, too. It’s the fruit of our collective work to build a better food system.

In light of this, we're taking a big risk. Food Tank is doubling the staff by hiring an editor-in-chief and a membership director. You’ve seen what Food Tank has been able to accomplish thus far with just two employees, imagine what four of us will be able to do.

But to do that -- we need to know YOU are in. We need to know that you believe in what we are doing.

We need you to join Food Tank right now: https://foodtank.com/sustainer.

We welcome you to use the #GivingTuesday hashtag to share the news of your gift, and to encourage others to do the same.

Food Tank is funded by hundreds of people from more than 110 countries, eachgiving an average donation of US$50. And believe me—we stretch every penny.

Food Tank can’t grow without your help.

So, can we count on you to support Food Tank today? https://foodtank.com/sustainer
