Feeding Indiana’s Hungry was chosen by Food Tank and the James Beard Foundation for their exemplary work in creating a fairer and more sustainable food system.
The James Beard Foundation (www.jamesbeard.org) and Food Tank (www.foodtank.com), along with a prestigious advisory group of more than 70 food system experts, developed the second annual Good Food Org Guide featuring nearly 1,000 food related nonprofits across the United States, including Feeding Indiana’s Hungry.
The first annual 2014 Good Food Org Guide was released as the definitive guide to organizations—national and state-by-state—who are making an impact with their work. The 2014 Guide was viewed and downloaded by more than 100,000 individuals.
This year’s guide will be released at the James Beard Food Conference on October 19, 2015. The list was determined by distinguished experts, including past recipients of the James Beard Leadership Award and food and agriculture leaders.
This year’s guide has tripled in size and includes new features such as categories and an online interactive mapping and search tool. This brand new website (www.goodfoodorgguide.com) allows users to search by keyword, location, and category in order to explore the organizations they are most interested in. Every organization has its own unique profile page including contact information, description, logo, social media links, directions, and photos.
