Support Local Food Mapping this Week & be Matched!
Help us map local food resources, urban & rural!
NEW! Our Local Food Mapping Microproject!
We invite you to be among the first to contribute and be matched, all week here on GlobalGiving! Your contributions for Little by Little - up to $50 are 50% matched - until Friday September 22 at Midnight ET. Please pitch in here:
Want to give more to support local food security in communities across the city and around the world? Anytime is fine, but on Giving Tuesday, there’s a bigger match for donations on GlobalGiving, up to $2500. We’ll remind you as November 28th nears!
We are so excited about the reaction to our new Food Icons! Already there’s a soon-to-be-printed nation-wide Green Map underway in Iceland, and on our mapping platform includes terrific examples from Washington State, Pennsylvania, British Columbia and Scotland.
This work is transformational. It’s so critical that we are still collecting ideas for this icon set in person and online.
Check out the overview and see all the icons at GreenMap.org/localfood.
Have ideas or suggestions? Add to the survey there or please join us in NYC on Saturday October 14th at the Swale House on Governors Island. This is the public day of our Residency there. From 11-5pm, you are welcome to come and explore the Local Food Icons. Have a snack and talk about your mapping concepts and what’s coming up for the next NYC Geeen Map. See you there, at Swale House in Nolan Park!
