Rodale Institute recently announced the launch of Your 2 Cents, an innovative program that unites consumers and companies in support of the next generation of American farmers. The Your 2 Cents program is designed to raise funds to support student scholarships for sustainable agriculture degrees, military veterans establishing careers in organic farming, and new organic farmers while establishing research grants for farmers in the Your 2 Cents network. Inaugural program partner Uncle Matt’s Organic, a company that offers premium organic citrus juice and produce, will kick off support by donating two cents per case good of their organic juice sold to the fund.
Companies like Uncle Matt’s Organic participate by donating two pennies per case good sold to the Your 2 Cents fund, which is governed by an advisory board consisting of representatives from companies partnering with Rodale Institute on the Your 2 Cents program. The advisory board will review applications quarterly, and allot funds for the education, training and establishment of new organic farmers who will feed America sustainably in coming generations.
Uncle Matt’s Organic is a Florida-based, family-owned company offering premium quality organic citrus juices and organic produce.
