Couple will donate $1 million over three years with focus on link between diet and climate.
Social Entrepreneurs Seth Goldman and Julie Farkas announced today the launch of a new grants program, Eat the Change® Impact. They plan to donate $1 million ($335,000 per year) over the next three years to national and community-based nonprofits to promote more planet-friendly foods.
Grant applications will be open from April 1- May 15, 2020. All applicants must be 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and all grants will be awarded by August 1, 2020.
“There’s a lot of anxiety about what’s going on in the world. But there’s one part of our lives everyone is empowered to control, and that’s the food choices we make,” said Seth Goldman. Goldman is a Founder of Honest Tea, PLNT Burger and is Chair of the Board of Beyond Meat.
“Planet-friendly diets do not have to be economically or geographically exclusive,” said Julie Farkas. “There are significant gaps in terms of information and access to planet-friendly diets, but we hope these grants will help close those gaps.”
