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, inducted into the Library of Congress, and have received numerous other awards and accolades.

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 501-C-3 nonprofit organization. Please support our work with a tax-deductible donation.

We also partnered with Atmos Financial, a climate-positive banking platform that scales up climate solutions while earning you high interest rates. Atmos will donate $20 to Civil Eats for every new account, and 100% of your FDIC-insured deposits will go to funding innovative technologies and infrastructure to combat the climate crisis. And, when you choose to give regularly to any of the climate non-profits on their platform, Atmos will double your savings rate.
