Liz Walch is the Program Manager for Food for Thought, a program of Animal Place. Food for Thought helps animal and environmental nonprofits adopt animal- and earth-friendly menu policies for fundraising and sponsored events. The Food for Thought campaign can help align your organization’s menu with its mission by adopting a formal policy regarding the types of food it serves... or doesn’t serve! Liz joins us on Connected Roots to share Food for Thought's fascinating background, how humane education impacts their work, and the many resources they offer to help organizations and advocates create a more humane, peaceful, and sustainable world.
