Become a Member of the Food Literati!
Food Literati [fu: d litəˈrätē] noun plural: People well-educated in food systems who are invested in working together and supporting food literacy education. Food literati aren’t foodies who eat; Food literati change food—for good.
Members of the Food Literati sustain our grassroots efforts to inspire kids to eat their vegetables! Your donations allow us to teach more kids, train more Food Literacy Geniuses, buy more broccoli and create meaningful public programs to build a healthy, sustainable community.
Because we don’t accept funding from Big Junk Food, we rely on supporters like you.
