Giving Back for Goodness Sake
11.30.20 Tanya Ciurro
Earlier this year we asked, “How will you make the world a better place?”
One easy and uplifting way to do so is by giving back to your community. If enough people and organizations make a conscious effort to give and support those in need, we can transform communities — and ultimately the world — for the better.
As the demand for food continues to increase through the pandemic, our team is choosing to send love and support to food banks. We hope our efforts inspire you to give back to communities of your own.
If you’re looking to give back this holiday season but don’t know which organizations to give to, we’ve put together the following list of agricultural nonprofits you can help support:
As the world’s largest hunger relief program, Feeding America works to connect people with food and local food banks to end hunger in the United States. According to Feeding America, food banks are currently seeing a 60% increase in demand for food due to the pandemic.
Dedicated to educating the next generation of farmers, these two organizations help provide youth-aged individuals with farming knowledge, experience and leadership skills.
MANRRS is focused on empowering minorities in agriculture, natural resources and related sciences through the promotion of academic and professional advancement.
The mission of the Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center is to educate families about the origins of our food and sustainable farming practices.
FARMS is a legal nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing land loss and reducing hunger in rural low-income communities, ultimately helping retain land use for next-generation farmers.
The Farmer Angel Network is committed to providing farmers with mental health support by collaborating with local organizations.
Committed to feeding kids who might otherwise go hungry, Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities and resources across the U.S. to provide weekend meals for children.
The Hunger Task Force’s Dairy Recover Program partners with emergency food organizations to supply the underfed and unemployed with nutritious milk.
By providing communities with hands-on training and sustainable farming methods, Sustainable Harvest International is committed to fighting poverty hunger and deforestation throughout the world.
Heifer International’s mission is to help end hunger and poverty by supporting farmers and their communities throughout the world. They pursue this mission by providing communities with animals, teaching how to properly care for them, and giving farmers the tools to market products.
Through donations, volunteering, generosity and just lending a helping hand, we believe the best gifts are the ones you give. We hope you can join us in giving back this year — and every year that follows — to help make the world a better place.
