Tune into something new and help out a cause.
What if you could help support a nonprofit’s cause just by listening? Turns out, you absolutely can through listening to a nonprofit podcast and becoming knowledgeable about the efforts of the organizations that produce them.
A topic near and dear to the hearts of many (our team at The Houston Pod included) is food. Thousands upon thousands of people in our world go hungry every single day, and climate change and harsh political differences are a cause for great concern in terms of feeding our world and supporting our ecosystems so that we can continue to grow the food that fills our plates and keeps us healthy.
This week, we’re taking this opportunity to give back to those who are giving the most in the podcast world and spreading the word on three fantastic non-profit food podcasts that are well worth a listen and even more worthy of a donation to their cause.
1. Heritage Radio Network
Why just recommend one podcast when we can recommend an entire network of food-based content to enjoy?
Since 2009, Heritage Radio Network has been recording and distributing podcasts that cover the ins and outs of food and everything related to it. Based in Brooklyn, New York, Heritage Food Network broadcasts from two recycled shipping containers behind Roberta’s Pizza and they’re supported entirely by their partners and members that share their passion.
With over 40 hosts and hundreds of episodes in their archives, there’s guaranteed to be something new for you to dig into in order to satisfy whatever you’re craving. Policy makers, chefs, brewers, farmers, advocates, and so many more individuals gather together under one roof to share their love and interests in food, all for the good cause of educating the community on everything from food science to preparation, history to health.
Check them out on their website and Apple Podcasts, and support their cause to continue to spread the word on the importance of food education here.
2. Food Tank: Food Talk with Dani Nierenberg
World-renowned advocate, speaker, researcher, and President of Food Tank, Danielle “Dani” Nierenberg hosts a nonprofit food podcast that aims to provide an outlet for information and passion on global food systems.
Focusing on poverty, hunger, obesity, and climate change, Food Tank and their podcast participates with high profile groups and expert guests to discuss current food issues and practical solutions that we can make the effort to work on together.
You can listen to this podcast from Food Tank on their website, as well as subscribe to listen to more episodes on Apple Podcasts. While you’re listening, check out how you can support their cause to create safe, sustainable food systems.
3. Hacking Hunger Podcast
The last nonprofit podcast we’re going to highlight is Hacking Hunger Podcast from World Food Program (WFP) USA. WFP works with US corporations, foundations, policymakers, and individuals to alleviate global hunger.
Covering everything from health to safety, politics to economics, WFP’s Hacking Hunger is a wealth of knowledge with an expertly curated selection of guests from all over the world. From facing harsh realities to inspiring change, this podcast is a must-listen to stay in-the-know about food around the world.
Check out Hacking Hunger on the WFP website, and keep up with the most recent episodes on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify. Also, we strongly urge you to consider making a donation to help World Food Program fight global hunger.
