Renewing America’s Food Traditions (RAFT)

RAFT is an alliance of seven organizations working to preserve America’s endangered foods. They have created several wonderful models for collecting and sharing information on local food heritage, such as:

  • Holding regional workshops to assess the status of food traditions in each of the food nations identified by RAFT
  • Creating and publishing lists of endangered foods
  • Publishing a book highlighting endangered foods, recipes, and stories about those food traditions
