For the past seven years, our tiny team of writers and editors has worked hard to bring a diverse array of perspectives to the forefront while shining a light on the food system stories that matter most. We’ve been gratified that our work has been awarded and recognized. Now, for the first time, to help support our work, we’re hosting an in-person celebration in San Francisco on Tuesday, November 29, which is also #GivingTuesday.
We are thrilled to bring our community together to celebrate the vital work of our writers and editors, and showcase their important stories. Civil Eats’ advisory board member Chef Alice Waters and many other food movement movers and shakers will be in attendance. We’ll be featuring the bounty of the Bay Area, and we are so grateful for an incredible outpouring of support from some of the best farmers, producers, and chefs, including:
Alta CA | Bonny Doon Vineyard | Bi-Rite Market | Big Night Restaurant Group | BN Ranch | Brown Sugar Kitchen | Community Grains | Cowgirl Creamery | Devoto Orchards Cider | Earthbound Farm | Emmer & Co | Equator Coffees & Tea | Fresh Run Farm | Full Belly Farm | Guittard | Husch Vineyards | Jardinière | June Taylor Jams | Lev’s Original Kombucha | Little Organic Farm | Llano Seco | Lundberg Family Farms | Magpie | Marin Sun Farms | McEvoy Ranch | Mendocino Wine Growers | Mindful Meats | Miyoko’s Kitchen | Mosto | Nopa | Nopalito | Omnivore |Patagonia Provisions | The Perennial | Piccino | Pie Ranch | Quince | Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery | Ripple Foods | Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard | SHED | Sierra Orchards | Straus Family Creamery | Sweetgreen |Tartine Bakery | ThirstyBear Organic Brewery | Veritable Vegetable | Weirauch Farm & Creamery | Wrath Wines

Civil Eats is a non-profit, independent media site. We’ve never taken advertising and rely on our subscription service, independent donations, and foundation grants to pay our writers and editors. Every part of the event is being donated, from the generosity of our host location, The Village, to the chefs and producers, to our all-volunteer event team.
We are hoping this benefit will help us raise enough money to continue our award-winning reporting. In a media landscape that often rewards entertainment over critical thinking, we count on your support to help us continue to do the work we do!
As journalist and author Mark Bittman has said, “There has never been a more important time to support independent food policy journalism. I hope you’ll join me in supporting the vital role Civil Eats plays as the primary source for balanced, national conversations about our food system, food politics, and food policy.”
We hope you are able to join us, and if you aren’t able to attend in person, please consider making a donation via the eventbrite link (or via PayPal), signing up for a subscription, and sharing our Facebook invite. Thank you from all of us at Civil Eats!
