My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Institute for Food and Development Policy Inc, Oakland, CA, USA
I became acquainted with Food First after attending a course from Executive Director Dr. Holt-Gimenez. Reading Food First's publication "Food Rebellions" really put global food issues into perspective for me. Later, volunteering at Food First was a great experience. Their work approaches global and local issues in a thoughtful way that is fully informed by historical precedents.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The organization is very supportive to staff, interns and volunteers. They create a learning environment where people get things done and move projects forward. Results cover both research and activism. This is not a plodding nonprofit; Food First is all about action!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
like to see them receive enough funding to create larger, more stable project teams.
