The burning of the Amazon rainforest is a devasting event that makes our hearts sink in despair. It’s understandable that many people feel helpless and depressed in the face of such a tragedy. We can’t reverse what happened, but we can reduce deforestation and forest fires in the United States, Brazil, and throughout the world by inspiring more foodservice providers to sell plant-based food.
The Good Food Institute builds, supports, and promotes the plant-based food industry so cattle farmers won’t burn places like the Amazon to make way for grazing and planting crops to feed animals. And we have a team in Brazil working on these issues.
I started a fundraiser to help this cause. I hope you’ll consider making a gift of whatever you can. Every dollar helps shift demand away from resource-depleting industrialized animal agriculture and toward a brighter, kinder future of food. Thank you so much.
