You can be a local food star today by becoming a member of the Illinois Stewardship Alliance. This year marks the 40th Anniverary of the Illinois Stewardship Alliance. They have been working to support family farmers, promote conservation and land stewardship, and revitalize communities and economies through local food and sustainable agriculture.

Particularly in Chicago, we are so fortunate to have many effective, vibrant organizations working on improving the local food system, so choosing where to channel your donation dollars can be hard. The Illinois Stewardship Alliance is on the ground, actively working, especially on the painstaking process of legislative issues in Springfield that can affect all of us for many years to come. So if you find yourself frustrated with the status quo, distressed at the direction the food world is going, you can do something about it by donating to the Illinois Stewardship Alliance who works tirelessly on all these local food issues. Becoming a member takes 2 minutes so do it today!

It is always best to be actively involved but if you want to do something, today, be a change maker!The Illinois Stewardship Alliance is one of the absolutely best places that you can feel good about putting your dollars to make a difference in the local food system. Be a star today!!!!

(The Illinois Stewardship Alliance is currently running a membership drive through June 30th. New members and current members that recruit friends, family and colleagues to join will be entered into a drawing for a number of great prizes, including a one month meat CSA from Cedar Valley Sustainable Farm ($90 value) and Patagonia luggage. We are not participating in this contest at the Local Beet, but you can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
