Charity of the Month - The Food Trust
EatSmart fans will continue to select a Charity of the Month in 2016. Fans will submit short stories about the charity’s mission and why it’s meaningful to them. We began our Charity of the Month donations in 2011. In honor of National Nutrition Month, we’ve selected The Food Trust as our charity of the month for March.
The mission of The Food Trust:The Food Trust was founded with a simple idea: healthy change. There were neighborhoods where residents couldn’t easily buy healthy foods — and science shows that people who live in underserved neighborhoods are more at risk for serious diet-related diseases. The Food Trust has worked with neighborhoods, schools, grocers, farmers and policymakers to change how we think about healthy food and to increase its availability. The Food Trust's mission is to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food and information to make healthy decisions. Working with neighborhoods, schools, grocers, farmers and policymakers, we've developed a comprehensive approach to improved food access that combines nutrition education and greater availability of affordable, healthy food.
