Giving Tuesday is a global day of generosity. For many that translates to providing support for nonprofits that make a difference, like California Farmland Trust. Giving Tuesday immediately follows the hustle and bustle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and kicks-off the giving season. Millions of people come together every year to support and champion the causes they believe in. Join us on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 to celebrate #GivingTuesday.
For California Farmland Trust, Giving Tuesday is about acknowledging our farmers, who work hard to feed our families and communities. Those who grow the safe, nutritious food that we prepare for our families not only throughout the holiday season, but every day!
It’s also about working together to protect more farmland. Every day, 2,000 acres of farmland are paved over, fragmented, or converted to uses that jeopardize food production – that is 2.5 times the size of the UC Merced Campus. Over the course of a week, that loss of farmland exceeds the size of the San Luis Reservoir!
Together we can make a difference! We must protect our farmland and our food supply.
