Current LAND AND FOOD Campaign
Indigenous plant crops making delicious healthy food can help heal our planet and you.
Dramatic changes to the culture of how we eat take place when our food is derived from disruptive, alternative ingredients supplied by self-sustaining organic farmers who own their own land..
IF is committed to influencing developing countries, whose small rural farmers often live in near poverty. Our current work includes stimulating social enterprise farming programs , organized cropping and alternative flour milling in conjunction with influencing the use of plant crops as the best solution for the Western Word’s growing epidemic around gluten and grain.

Field to Factory
In association with the Belize government and Snack Plant (a “Green Impact” alternative flour factory model) IF is helping facilitate social enterprise initiatives to allow small farmers to crop and supply coconuts, yucca and plantain, which are then processed at a local facility to supply . The resulting employment opportunities and economic stimulation has been beneficial to the country.
A country abundant with organic plant crops, yet a country that imports $200,000,000 in rice ( 1/4 of its GDP) - Cargo ships arrive full and leave empty.
Influence Foundation is working with the government through the Ministry of Water and Energy led by Kimmie Weeks, whose own district once was the home of American Firestone Company and British Steele.
