Food unites us. The fabric of family and community is woven from the meals that nourish us and bring people together. The fact that we take from Mother Earth for this communion is not lost on most chefs, farmers, or food entrepreneurs. The very act of regeneration that is inherent in our harvest practically dictates that as we take, so we give.

Join some of the people who are doing some of the most eye-opening work in the realm of food philanthropy. From giving back to the earth, to underserved communities, these culinary connoisseurs demonstrate how the best thing about food is sharing.

• Ryland Englehart, Co-owner of Cafe Gratitude and Gracias Madre. He is a co-founder of Kiss The Ground, a non-profit that educates and advocates about the connection between soil, human, and planetary health.
