We need your help to continue our work. Believe it or not, the store runs at a break even. I know it sounds crazy, but we pay the makers and farmers fairly and the cost of shipping, packaging and advertising are so high that there is no profit left. That's why we need extra funding to help us continue our outreach and support for farmers and independent food makers. We want to help them compete with Big Ag and the multinational food corporations that dominate our food system.
In the coming year our goal is to provide direct assistance to farmers who are Women and Black, Indigenous and People Of Color but we can't do that without you!
Many online retailers charge the makers for advertising, unsold product and warehouse costs, or they "drop ship" meaning that they really do nothing except forward the order to the maker to fulfill but they take a hefty cut of the profit. Thats exactly why we started Foodocracy. Help us keep making a difference in independent food!
Foodocracy is a 501(c)3 mission-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting a more independent and sustainable food system by assisting small scale farmers and small batch producers in creating fair and equitable income opportunities. Our mission is anchored in the fundamental belief that food should be good for the environment, our health and local economies.
