Hi there! Are you one of the hundreds of new visitors to the Keep Food Legal website? Or maybe you haven't been here in a while? We'd love to take this opportunity to let you know more about what we do and what we've been up to recently.
Keep Food Legal is a nonpartisan, grassroots, member-supported 501(c)(4) nonprofit based in Washington, DC. Learn more about us (including information about Baylen Linnekin, the lawyer who founded and leads Keep Food Legal, and the group's fantastic board of directors) here.
Keep Food Legal advocates for food freedom. We define food freedom as your right to grow, raise, produce, buy, sell, cook, eat, and drink the foods of your own choosing. We don't advocate in favor of any particular food choices. Why not? Because we want you to exercise your right to make those choices for yourself (and your family, if you have kids). You make the choices, we defend your right to make the choices.
Our day-to-day work involves four main prongs: advocacy, research, publishing, and outreach.
- We advocate in print, on TV, on radio, and through social media. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
- We present our research at places like University of Chicago School of Law, Harvard University School of Law, the National Street Food Conference in San Francisco, and elsewhere. Check out our prior and upcoming presentations here.
- We write. A lot. From popular press articles, columns, and op-eds to more research-centered, academic writings, we've got a trove of publications that are available right at your fingertips.
- We engage in a great deal of outreach with individuals and groups across the political and ideological spectrum on a variety of issues.
