Though seemingly small, these projects represented something important: a powerful alternative to the highly destructive industrial agricultural system. They were seeds of change. In 2021, we decided to transition our organisation to focus on watering these seeds and became a fund, enabling and nourishing the transformation of our food systems.
To keep things simple, we tweaked our name to The Sustainable Table Fund and stepped into a redefined role as a connector between important work that needs to take place, and those who wish to invest in it.
When we launched the Fund to the philanthropic community in April 2021, we successfully raised over $1.4 million (and counting!) to fund our core delivery team and local food initiatives that are, step-by-step, day-by-day, plate-by-plate, taking us all in the right direction.
