FCI Needs Our Support!!

Over the years, The Butchers Guild has collaborated with Eat Real and The Food Craft Institute to create comprehensive meat education. We consider them our comrades! So with that said, here is a call to action!

The Food Craft Institute has been supporting small food makers with launching or growing their businesses since 2012. The work we do is helping create a permanent sector of viable artisan food. We’re hoping to collaborate with you once again, in the lead up to our participation in East Bay Gives on Thursday, May 4. On that day we need to raise $10,000 to continue providing high-quality education programs and mentorship for local food makers.

Since we’re both passionate about making our local food system stronger we’re hoping you can help us with the following:

  • Contribute directly to FCI programs on Thursday May 4 through the East Bay Gives website. Every little bit counts. (You can schedule a donation online today and then track our progress on May 4.)

  • Help us spread the word through your channels. We’ve included copy and images you could use below.

We hope you’re able to help FCI reach our goal. Thank you.

All the best

Willoughby, Ally, Marshka
