POWERFUL STORYTELLING AND COMMUNICATIONS TO INSPIRE, EDUCATE, AND GROW THE MOVEMENT FOR SUSTAINABILITY AND EQUITY ALONG THE FOOD CHAIN.

WHAT WE DO

We work with partners across the country
to develop creative media initiatives. We are always eager to hear from potential allies on how we can collaborate. Take a look at some of our current and past partnerships and be in touch.

CONNECT

Organizing Toolkits

We don’t know about you, but we’ve been feeling all the feels as 2017 unfolds. Some of that takes the form of anxiety, frustration, and fear. But there’s also a tremendous amount of energy and desire to connect with one another and make meaningful change.

We at Real Food Media know that one of the best ways to feel better is through community—especially over a shared meal in good company. But to turn our collective energy into a force for positive change, we need to go one step further… we need to organize.

From backyard gardens to town halls across the country and beyond, one thing is certain: nothing is more powerful than people coming together to create the kind of world they want to see. To those of you out there making meaningful connections and taking concrete steps to change the systems that cause far too much suffering, we see you. If you’re feeling a new urgency to come together to protect your communities and create resilient food systems from the ground up, we’re with you

We’re working on a set of toolkits to do just that.

If you believe a more equitable, humane, just, healthy, and environmentally sustainable world is possible: Let’s get busy.

JOIN OUR REAL FOOD READS BOOK CLUB

Books have power, but you know that!

 

At Real Food Media, we believe that, too. And when it comes to food, we believe books are central to help us understand what’s broken in our food system and how to fix it. We also believe that coming together to read books – debate them, question them, discuss them and celebrate them – is a fabulous way to build community and learn about our food system at the same time.

  • The collaboration with the Real Food Media team has been wonderful, helping our workers make profound connections with their fellow organizers, building up their courage to speak up against exploitation and for justice and sparking them to share their stories with a broad audience.

    — Joann Lo, Food Chain Workers Alliance —
  • Corporate interests are investing vast sums of money in storytelling designed to influence Americans’ food choices. I am encouraged that so many original voices have come forth in the Real Food Films Contest, keeping the food and farming dialogue in the hands of the people.

    — Michael Pollan, Real Food Films Judge —
  • Corporate Accountability is proud to be the organizational home of this groundbreaking project. Anna Lappé, her team, and project partners are giving voice to a food future that nurtures health and the environment, instead of making both sick. Real Food Media is also a potent force in democratizing a food culture that has to this point been shaped by a handful of transnational corporations and PR firms.

    — Kelle Louaillier, Corporate Accountability —
  • Real Food Media’s materials are an invaluable tool for organizing on campuses across the country. And Project Director Anna Lappé, is a powerful force for student movement building: She has spoken at dozens of schools with emerging “real food” campaigns from Florida to California. Whenever she does, our work on the ground is strengthened.
