Review from Guidestar
December 12, 2010

I have always been impressed with the quality of publications they produce, and the way their work gets to the heart of the matter. It made a big difference to my understanding of the complexity of situations when I was a freshman in college, which has affected the way I am able to make an impact today. They are an amazing group that deserves top support.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reading their publications as a young student, educating myself.

increase its visibility in the US and worldwide.

I was a young mother, inspired by Frances Lappe's work, when I became aware of Food First. We had five children and very little money, and I wanted to feed our family as well as possible. Food First helped me realize that we were like all parents of humble means, all over the earth, who love their children. Food First affirmed my understanding of our one single human family, and the absolute importance of sharing what we have so that there can be enough for all, and no one's plate need be empty. I'm a grandmother now, and I haven't lost my admiration for the quiet, intelligent, disinterested, and noble goals Food First has faithfully pursued all these years, for the benefit of us all.

The Great!

There are very few organizations that address fundamental problems. Most fix symptoms, like an aspirin fixes a headache. Food First approaches the basic problems that cause human hardship and social unrest. And they point out that even well intentioned programs can cause harm when they are implemented without an understanding of the basic problems.

The Great!

I've followed the predictions of Food First and watched how some of the unpleasant things have come true. I've also observed how their work has promoted small enterprises such as Fair Trade coffee, etc., and helped stabilize communities.
