We are passionate about making an impact through food. Alongside the launch of Butterfly Equity, we created the Butterfly Equity Foundation based on the belief that food and food-related issues are a critical path to addressing urgent matters of community health, welfare and opportunity. The foundation is a philanthropic organization dedicated to improving the health and well-being of all people by supporting greater access to nutritious food. It is guided by a vision of the world where everyone has all the fresh, healthy food they need to thrive. For more information, please visit the foundation.
