Valrhona's goal is to support the “The Good Food Org” Guide that started three years ago by Food Tank and the James Beard Organization with the ambition of building a comprehensive database of organizations working to build a better food system in all fifty states. The guide (printed, as well as available online database) provides opportunities for anyone interested in volunteering or joining their local food movement.
So far this guide has been downloaded more than 60,000 times with more than 14,000 downloads in the last year alone.
The Guide has approximately 1,400 entries so far in all 50 states and with our support they plan to double to 2,500 organizations, unearthing an additional 1,110 new organizations as well as updating contact info/impact statements/photos/volunteer opportunities from the existing 1,400 entries. They will also be able to build this as an easily searchable free app for Apple iOS and Android Google Play mobile devices. It will also exist as a stand-alone database and integrated into the Food Tank website.
With Valrhona’s help, this will be the most comprehensive guide to the good food movement and opportunities for people to become involved ever assembled.
