Eat the Change™ is a movement whose mission is bigger than any one sector. While the intersection of activism and entrepreneurship is at the core of our mission, we know that nonprofit organizations at the national level as well as groups on the ground at the community level play a vital role in sparking change. That’s why Eat the Change™ began in summer 2020 with the ETC Impact grants program – while we were sautéing mushrooms and experimenting with flavors in our test kitchen, we were also connecting with inspiring groups across the country.
With Eat the Change's support, Food Shift is filling gaps in the food supply chain caused by the COVID pandemic, to combat rising food waste and food insecurity and provide climate-friendly, plant-based meals to our most vulnerable neighbors.
From libraries to senior living facilities and churches, founders Laurel and Lamar Mauldin meet people where they are to share the physical, spiritual, and environmental benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, with an emphasis on preventing and reversing diabetes.
