Good Food Policy Program

The Lumpkin Family Foundation supports organizations working toward a more equitable, healthy, and environmentally sustainable food system. The Good Food Policy Program makes grants to advance policies that encourage and promote regenerative farming practices across the country.

We will support efforts aimed at federal policy changes, whether place-based and grass roots or top-down and national in approach. Informed by and connected to our local and regional programs, we will invite applications aligned with our vision and mission that offer opportunities for learning and strengthen grantee organizations, their networks, and the good food movement overall.

Focus of Support

  • The focus of this program is on federal policy and advocacy, empowering organizations and people to affect their communities, and the food system. In particular, grantee efforts will:
    • Align with the Foundation’s mission, especially in supporting people working together in collaborations across sectoral, organizational, or community boundaries.
    • Use communication tools to change or create a new narrative that can be used to influence policymakers and broader public understanding of the issues.
    • Empower citizens and a range of stakeholders at a grassroots level in equal fairness.
    • Represent a judicious and effective allocation of resources (human and capital) that meets the Foundation’s particular needs and goals with the size of that investment.
