Civil Eats is a trusted voice that works to tell meaningful, nuanced, and often overlooked food politics stories in an increasingly challenging media landscape.

We report on the most important food and agriculture stories of our time and consistently challenge our readers to ask key questions about sustainability, food justice, nutrition, and policy. It’s for these reasons that we were awarded the James Beard Foundation’s Publication of the Year in 2014.

As an independent media outlet, we rely on support from foundations, individuals, and our readers and we’ve never taken advertising.

Civil Eats is a fiscally sponsored project of a non-profit foundation. Please support our work via a tax-deductible donation. Together, we hope to continue to speak truth to power and for a better food system for all.

NEW: This year your donation will go twice as far! Civil Eats was selected to participate in News Match. Now through December 31, 2017, individual donations up to $1,000 each will be doubled by News Match partners, including Democracy Fund, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. You can donate here or on our news match page here

THANK YOU for your support of independent media!
