ANV honored by James Beard Foundation in 2016 Good Food Org Guide

 

Acta Non Verba’s work was recently honored in the 2016 Good Food Org Guide by the James Beard Foundation and Food Tank. The vision and objective of this guide is to focus attention on nonprofit organizations who are working in fields, kitchens, classrooms, laboratories, businesses, town halls, and Congress to create a better food system. ANV founder Kelly Carlisle shares, “It feels wonderful to be listed with other amazing organizations doing good food work! We know it takes a village to address the problems of our food system, so we are proud and humbled by all the work and passion these organizations bring to the table every day.” See more as reported by the East Bay Times.
