Sustainable Food

Sustainable Food Project Stream

A project that facilitates sustainable food choices in your community.

What are sustainable food choices? They can be anything from choosing local and seasonal foods, eating a more plant-based diet, choosing organics, choosing whole foods over processed ones, being aware of where your food comes from, growing your own food and reducing food waste.

Examples of possible projects:

  • Plant a community vegetable garden available to those in need
  • Create a pollinator sanctuary for local butterflies and bees
  • Create an awareness campaign to encourage sustainable food alternatives

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in more than 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
