BEYOND MEAT X SOCIAL CHANGE FUND
July 22, 2020
As part of our commitment to creating lasting, systemic change for Black communities, we are partnering with the newly formed non-profit Social Change Fund.
Social Change Fund is a newly formed non-profit, created by Chris Paul, Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony and a group of Black industry executives, which aims to create lasting, systemic change for Black communities across America and fight for justice on all fronts. In partnership with influential organizations, the Social Change Fund is working to accelerate social change and sustainable build a fair, equitable society.
“I’ve been a longtime supporter of Beyond Meat and am excited to welcome them as a founding partner into the Social Change Fund. Like the Social Change Fund, I know that Beyond Meat is committed to progress for our communities. I look forward to all the good that we can continue to do together,” said Chris Paul, Beyond Meat investor and ambassador.
This partnership furthers our commitment to fighting disparities in the Black community through initiatives tied to social justice, education and health equality. We believe food is a powerful vehicle for change. In April we launched the Feed a Million+ pledge, which aimed to provide more than one million Beyond Burgers at no cost to frontline healthcare workers and communities in need. Through our strong community of employees, ambassadors and fans like Chris Paul, Kevin Hart, Ashanti, Karlie Kloss, Lindsey Vonn and P.K. Subban, we fulfilled a growing need and provided more than five million nourishing Beyond Meat meals.
“We are honored to join in partnership with Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony in support of the Social Change Fund. Beyond Meat is dedicated to serving broader social goals, using what’s on the center of the plate as a critical starting point,” said Ethan Brown, Founder and CEO, Beyond Meat. “And we are excited to support and work with the Social Change Fund initiative to address racial inequalities in nutrition access and health outcomes in America.”
We look forward to seeing this partnership grow and making a lasting impact, creating a better future for the next generation. #GoBeyond
