Renewing America's Food Traditions - RAFT

What is RAFT?

RAFT is a coalition of seven of the most prominent non-profit food, agriculture, conservation, and educational organizations dedicated to rescuing America’s diverse foods and food traditions. These organizations include: American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, Center for Sustainable Environments at Northern Arizona University, Chefs Collaborative, Cultural Conservancy, Native Seed/SEARCH, Seed Savers Exchange, and Slow Food USA. The coalition was formalized between January and March of 2004 to support a synergy between these partners and local, tribal, or regional groups of producers in their on-going work of safeguarding and revitalizing authentically American foods. The RAFT project has now received three years of support from the Cedar Tree Foundation, in addition to its start up support from the CS Fund and the Lillian Goldman Charitable Trust.
