I was recently asked by someone at a foundation whether I knew of any good food charities to fund. I know plenty. But the first thing that occurred to me was: 'don't fund food charities!'

But there is something that foundations looking to support sustainable food often neglect - sustainable businesses working in this space. I'm not really sure why. Perhaps the thinking is that these are businesses and should therefore fund themselves through own core activities, or be able to pull funding from other sources.
