We're so thankful for our members who make our work possible! A big thank you to Center For Food Safety for joining us!

As a leader in the food movement for over 25 years, Center for Food Safety uses groundbreaking legal, policy, corporate, public education, and grassroots campaigns to protect our food, our farms, and our environment.

Their pioneering legal, policy, and outreach strategies have started a revolution to transform our food system—curbing the use of toxic pesticides and GMOs in agriculture and promoting an ecological, regenerative, and just food and farming system. This innovative work has led to countless victories, winning high-profile lawsuits against Monsanto to protect public health and endangered species from pesticides like the cancer-causing Roundup, drift-prone dicamba, bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides, and toxic fungicides. And have stopped GMO wheat, rice, potatoes, tomatoes, fish, trees, and grass and won GMO labeling fights to ensure we all know what’s in our food.

Show your support by becoming a Business Member. There are several levels of support to choose from starting at $100/year. Find out more and sign up on our website.
