American Forests is the oldest national nonprofit conservation organization in the United States. Since our founding in 1875, we have been the pathfinders for creating healthy forests from coast to coast. Our Mission: American Forests creates healthy and resilient forests, from cities to wilderness, that deliver essential benefits for climate, people, water and wildlife. Our Vision: We envision a world in which the significant environmental, societal and economic benefits of forests are fully realized and equitably available to all people. Our work conserves the forests we already have and restores damaged forests. We use a variety of techniques to restore forest health. One of our main techniques is reforestation. We’ve planted 65 million trees in the last 30 years alone.
San Francisco Marin Food Bank
The SF-Marin Food Bank's mission is to end hunger in San Francisco and Marin, where one in four neighbors is at risk of hunger. We envision a community where everyone is able to obtain enough nutritious food in a dignified manner to support the health and well-being of themselves and their families. We address hunger head on: from our pantry network and home-delivered groceries, to our nutrition-education classes and CalFresh (food-stamp) enrollment, we work in many ways to nourish and empower neighbors in need. Every week, 30,000 households count on us for food assistance. Nearly 60 percent of what we distribute is fresh fruits and vegetables. Learn more at www.sfmfoodbank.org.
