BENEFITING: EARTH ISLAND INSTITUTE INC

ORGANIZER: Real Food

Christopher Wang

THE STORY:

I'm really honored to contribute to the Real Food Real Stories Fundraiser.  I could write so much to talk about how I've benefitted from collaborating with RFRS as a storyteller.  But, really, all you have to do is watch the short video.  In it, I say pretty much all I need to say.  

The wonderful success of The Gypsy Fish Company has been, in no small part, due to my support and collaboration with Real Food Real Stories.  So, if you're eating my salmon, you can thank Real Food Real Stories

There is a special kind of healing that takes place when one feels truly heard and Real Food Real Stories makes that happen.  After events, you can feel a certain kind of warmth in the room -- level of supportive engagement.    These are roots of true community.  Where we have an understanding of who our members are and how we can support them.  

Please join me in supporting RFRS.

About Real Food Real Stories

We've just completed our first year as a non-profit with 501(c)(3) status through Earth Island Institute. Through the support of individual donors and attendees, we have identified and coached 19 incredible changemakers in food using the power of storytelling and curated immersive experiences for over 700 attendees to connect with the inspiring people and narratives behind our food.

Why support us, you might ask? 

We produce monthly programming to bring you closer together with the people and stories behind your food. Our core programs are live storytelling gatherings where we get to know someone in the local community who is fighting to ensure we have access to the highest integrity food and nutrition that's beneficial to the health of people and planet. And we want to do far more.

Our small team of 3 part-time staff and volunteers works hard behind the scenes to find our next storytellers, create short films, design content & programming, and engage our community around food issues on a deeper level. We keep event ticket prices as low as possible to be as inclusive as possible while only covering the direct costs of the event - a meal, live music, photography/videography, and other event programming. As a small and young non-profit, we rely on individual donors and sponsors to help us do the work that keeps it all going and to take us to the next level.

Please join us in bringing you more stories that reach far and wide in 2017!

See our social media for more stories of local changemakers in food on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
