Support a project

In keeping with our intention to remain a small, ideas-focused organisation, the SFT works to develop specific projects, which we believe have potential to catalyse significant change across the food system.

As a new organisation, working collaboratively to bring about the change that is needed, our projects are limited to those activities we feel will:

  • Influence the policy and economic playing field to make a stronger social, and better business, case for sustainable food production
  • Drive key messages and ideas up the public agenda, increasing dialogue and citizen engagement with the issues
  • Bring about a broader, systemic, on-farm approach to scientific research and help to communicate complex findings in accessible ways

To make a donation to a specific project, please see the options below, or contact our fundraising manager, Claire Peeters, who would be happy to discuss the opportunities available.

True Cost Accounting is a global programme designed to bring about change to the current economic policies that underpin our food systems.

At present it is more economically profitable to farm unsustainably, than it is to farm sustainably. The polluter doesn’t pay, and those who deliver benefits from positive farming systems are not financially rewarded for their efforts.

By donating to this programme of work you are helping to support:

  • Campaigns to change the economic policies and subsidies that support industrial methods of production
  • Communications materials that help to inform the public about the true cost of cheap food
  • Research reviews and data analysis to help us put a monetary value on the positive and negative impacts of different farming systems

Anthony Rodale, Grandson of organic pioneer, J.I.Rodale, is running the upcoming Marathon des Sables, a 7 day, 150-mile, ultra-running adventure across the Sahara desert.

The funds raised from Rodale’s effort will be allocated to the SFT’s work reconnecting people to their food system by promoting a better understanding of the links between farming practice, food quality, safety and human health. This will include our work on True Cost Accounting (TCA) for food and farming which shows how highly subsidised, intensively-produced food does not reflect the true cost of the damage it causes to the environment and public health.

We believe that the change needed to transform our global food systems, will only happen if an informed and hungry public demand healthier, sustainably produced food.

Through our Communications & Citizen Engagement programme, we aim to tell inspiring stories from the new frontiers of the sustainable food movement, share information and resources on development and best-practice, and reach the general public on the issues that count.

By supporting our work in this area, you can help us to:

  • Create practical toolkits and resources, to help each individual play their part in the change that is needed
  • Develop engaging, creative communications materials that help to drive key issues and messages up the public agenda
  • Disseminate the complex messages of scientific research in accessible, understandable formats
