Support the New Food Economy

As publisher of The New Food Economy, I’d love to tell you what I think what makes our newsroom unique. The answer is simple and direct: It’s you, our curious and inquisitive readers.

We depend on your support to do what we do. Take, for example, last week’s story by New Food Economy contributor Marilyn Noble, about the Native-owned business that invented the commercial bison bar, and the start-up darling that took credit, built an empire on a foundation of misleading claims, promised ranchers investment that never materialized, and left an industry struggling in its wake. It sparked quite a conversation among our readers.

That’s why we’re thrilled to be a part of NewsMatch, a national call-to-action to support nonprofit news organizations. From now through the end of the year, NewsMatch will match your new monthly donation 12x or double your one-time gift—all up to $1,000.

This is a rare opportunity to maximize your investment in journalism that has a lasting impact.

Will you donate today to help us reach our $50,000 goal? Donate today.

Most recently, while working in newspaper publishing in Maine, he became intrigued about what allowed some of the state’s farm-to-table businesses to succeed while others continued to struggle. He decided that he, and other such businesses from coast to coast, needed to know more about how to make The New Food Economy work. Reach him by email at [email protected]
