Founded in 1982, Food Animal Concerns Trust (FACT) is a national nonprofit organization based in Chicago that promotes humane and healthy farms through science-based advocacy, consumer education, and support for humane farmers. FACT believes that all farm animals should be granted adequate space, access to the outdoors, clean water and air, the opportunity to express their natural behaviors, and safe feed.
Come celebrate with us at FACT’s 4th Annual Fund-a-Farmer Party on October 22 at Uncommon Ground! All the funds raised at our party will go directly to farmers and their animals. Thanks in part to last year’s party, we recently awarded grants to 24 farmers for projects to improve animal welfare and increase access to pasture on their farms. You are invited to join the fun and help us make this project a success!
At the party, you can enter our raffle, bid on unique online auction items, nosh on locally sourced bites, listen to live bluegrass by the Lantern Kickers, and meet Carole Morison, a Fund-a-Farmer grantee and farmer featured in the acclaimed documentary Food, Inc. Tickets are $25 and include two drinks and light appetizers. Please register online today!
