How Would You Make Our Food System More Awesome?<http://good.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5b63a0823e3b9c105434c46d7&id=c61ffb7b96&e=415d11ec2d>

[http://pre.cloudfront.goodinc.com/posts/full_1311621539pretzel.jpg]<http://good.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5b63a0823e3b9c105434c46d7&id=9173dbfa02&e=415d11ec2d>

Our current food system is decidedly not awesome: it subsidizes food that makes us sick and makes it difficult to get ahold of anything fresh. But a micro-grant foundation, called Awesome Food<http://good.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5b63a0823e3b9c105434c46d7&id=96fa0854c8&e=415d11ec2d>, that launched last week is trying to make it better. Starting next month, it intends to give out $1,000 per month to “further food awesomeness in the universe.” If you get your application<http://good.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5b63a0823e3b9c105434c46d7&id=e4a829daf0&e=415d11ec2d> in by August 5, you could be the winner of the first round of money.

According to the website<http://good.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5b63a0823e3b9c105434c46d7&id=252734ef00&e=415d11ec2d>, the “no-strings attached grant” could fund a variety of projects—everything from “educating the public about DIY farming” to “creating an ad-hoc eatery in a subway car."

"We’re not entirely sure what ideas we’ll get—that’s part of the fun of this!” said Jeff Potter, a food writer and foundation trustee. “But we’ll know awesomeness when we see it.”

Awesome Food is a chapter of the worldwide Awesome Foundation, a microgrant funder that launched in Boston two years ago and now includes chapters in cities around the world. (The food chapter is the first issue-based one). Awesome Food’s board of trustees includes an all-star set of foodies including Dan Barber of Blue Hill Farms<http://good.us2.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=5b63a0823e3b9c105434c46d7&id=24cf498d21&e=415d11ec2d> in New York and food journalist Jennifer 8. Lee<http://good.us2.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=5b63a0823e3b9c105434c46d7&id=94ad21d52b&e=415d11ec2d>. They've set a high bar for awesomeness, so step up your game. According to Lee, they've already received a bunch of great applications.
