Gift Guide 2018: Get The Dirt

December 23, 2018

This is the day of the year when I always suggest giving a subscription to a food publication.  In the past I’ve suggested Fool, Cherry Bombe, Sabor, and the late lamented Lucky Peach- and I still think those are all great ideas. (For the one that’s no longer around, you might buy back issues.)

But this year I’m going to suggest something a bit different.  The Dirt is a compilation of the best articles supported by the Food and Environment Reporting Network. Here’s their mission statement:

“The Food & Environment Reporting Network is the first and only independent, non-profit news organization that produces in-depth and investigative journalism in the critically underreported areas of food, agriculture, and environmental health. Through partnerships with local and national mainstream media outlets, we seek to tell stories that will inspire, inform, and have lasting impact.”

It’s a much needed – institution, and the work they support is impressive.  (In the interest of full disclosure I should note that I’m on the editorial board.) Because FERN is a non-profit institution, this also means your gift is tax deductible.
