Our food system is a minefield of health and environmental hazards. Independent media is critical to uncovering the truth.

As a subscriber to AlterNet's food newsletter, you know we are one of the best at reporting on the politics of food. From unethical and unsustainable factory farming to the use of deadly pesticides to the unrelenting marketing onslaught of fast food and sugary drinks, it's clear that Big Ag and Big Food are only interested in one thing: profit.

You also know that independent journalism is an essential ingredient (pun intended) to combating these threats—and getting to the real truth behind what we eat. With a dangerous president in the White House supporting powerful corporate food and agricultural interests, these battles are more pitched than ever before.

We need your help to keep the truth machine running. Please support us now

For more than two decades, AlterNet has been at the forefront of food journalism, calling out corporate malfeasance across America's hyper-industrialized food system, exposing the truth about fad diets, food security, food safety and food deserts, supporting healthy lifestyles and highlighting the work of local, organic growers, animal welfare advocates and sustainable food entrepreneurs seeking to make safe, wholesome and ethically produced food possible for all.

We do it all with a tiny staff and limited resources to get these important stories to a wide audience, reaching millions of concerned consumers like you who want to help solve the most critical food issues of our time.

But we can't do it without your support.

Will you join us in this crucial fight for truth and positive change? Make a contribution.

In solidarity,

Reynard Loki
Food Editor
