Civil Eats is seeking $100,000 to expand the important work of Civil Eats TV. Without philanthropic support, stories like Doria Robinson’s – and the many women working in the field – simply wouldn’t be told. Help Civil Eats TV put women in food in the spotlight, where they deserve to be.

Each episode of Civil Eats TV costs roughly $25,000 to make. Please consider making a donation to fund an entire episode. Donations of $1,000 to $5,000 will receive name screen credit; donations of $5,000 to $10,000 will receive “supported by” screen credit; and donations of $10,000 to $25,000 will receive “presented by” screen credit.

This year, Civil Eats seeks to profile more exceptional women, including a community grazing steward employing regenerative agriculture practices; a mobile farmworker health clinic run by Indigenous women; a young BIPOC wheat farmer; and a mushroom forager and mycologist.

“We believe the power of storytelling can change people’s hearts and minds and can truly make a difference,” says Civil Eats’ Naomi Starkman.
