The Culinary Trust: Funding the Future of Food

The Culinary Trust funds individual grants, internships and training for food writers covering important topics in food. We also support creative solution-driven programs in the fight against hunger via our Richard Sax Food Action Grants. 

The Culinary Trust started its corporate life on February 7, 1984 under the name Cooking Advancement Research and Education Foundation (CAREF).
