20 Cause-Driven Food Initiatives

From Well-Wasted Cuisine to Organic Food Giveaways

— August 12, 2014 — Lifestyle
Empowering culinary education, organic food giveaways and crime-fighting eating contests are just some of these cause-driven food sponsorship examples.

A memorable example from this list includes Create Foundation, a social enterprise whose work helps to support communities in need. The UK-based organization works out of Liverpool, Leeds, Doncaster and Sunderland and provides job and learning opportunities to less fortunate individuals.

Another standout from this list of cause-driven food sponsorship examples is the NYFoods Egg Change Project. The initiative aims to provide quality, local and organic egg products for those in need. The project operates on a "buy one, give one" model and makes organic food accessible for less fortunate community members whenever you purchase a dozen of organic eggs.
