We’ll be honest: we’re worried.
We are living in the most divided time of our generation and we are determined not to stay on the sidelines. Nearly every policy and social issue impacts our entire food system, from immigration, racial division and wage inequality to global trade, climate change and agricultural policy. Yet, coverage of this nature is severely underreported in an industry that is primarily made up of minorities and those without a voice to speak up against injustices.
Let’s do something about it.
We’re asking the industry to come together.
We want to build a collaborative movement that works together to tell the right stories, fights against injustices through investigative journalism, cultivates community empowerment, and become a collective voice for a more informed food system.
Who can join?
We encourage leaders, innovators and experts in the food industry (chefs, farmers, food writers, cultural professors, etc.) to apply but only candidates that exhibit leadership, a passion for advocacy & sustainability, and strive for a more inclusive and thoughtful food system will be accepted. All candidates are interviewed before acceptance.
What does it mean to be a part of the Brigade?
Brigaders become a critical driving force in our journalistic trajectory and for our own sustainability—think of them as ambassadors. The ideal Brigader will champion our mission for independent food journalism, promote industry inclusiveness, share knowledge and engage in food issues for a better tomorrow.
