A greater number of people are seeking out humane choices when they shop and dine out. There is a growing national consciousness about how food animals are raised and produced. American consumers want greater transparency in the food system, and want to know where their food comes from and how it is produced. Read more about Humane Choices.
FACT empowers consumers to support humane farms and directly funds projects to improve farm animal welfare. Your donations will enable FACT to continue to offer these small grants to eligible farmers. Visit our secure Donate page to make a one-time gift, help animals through a monthly donation, or give in honor of a loved one.
