Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we knew that the food we eat is grown with concern for our health and our planet, picked by people who were treated fairly, and cooked with the celebration of culture?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone – young and old, regardless of background, location and vocation – had the ability to help make our food system a fair and sustainable one?
Access to sufficient, affordable, and healthy foods is one of the key social justice issues of our time. Demanding access, however, first requires awareness of the central role of food. Food is a tangible and relevant tool by which we can raise awareness in adults and children about health, culture, politics, the economy, the environment, and language. The reality is that we can no longer sit on our hands and hope that someone else will take care of our food and our Earth. This is where Zomppa comes in….
Thanks our generous donors in 2010 & 2011, Zomppa achieved extraordinary milestones in 2012, including:
- a major renovation of our website to better deliver information that challenges the traditional ways of thinking about food;
- a 503% increase in global readership and increase in website rankings (1.2 mm to 319,000 most read in the world);
- the recruitment of 20 writers and contributors representing over 30 cultures and countries;
- the development and pilot of the Zompping for Food and Planet curriculum;
- the expansion of our children’s programs to include: Global Potluck and free workbooks for children; and
- the purchase of a veggie oil-run bus for the Sol Food Mobile Farm, our exciting program headed up by an enthusiastic group of sustainability advocates who will tour the U.S. in 2012 and pilot the Zomppa curriculum.
Currently, we are raising funds to build and expand our online classroom!
