The Salad Lobby advocates for salad’s place at the table.
There’s a lot working against salad these days. In the United States, we have a food system that makes unhealthy food cheaper than healthy food. Food corporations spend billions marketing nutritionally poor junk to children, so much that schools serve fast food rather than salads and have financial incentive to do so. Our own government skirts sound nutritional science under pressure from industries. The dairy and meat lobbies advocate for less regulations of their industries and these policies have made us sicker.
It’s time for The Salad Lobby. Why salad? We believe adding salad to the table will result in healthier tables, healthier people, and healthier generations.
What we do
What is The Salad Lobby? The Salad Lobby aims to influence American food culture by changing assumptions that healthy food is bland, expensive, hard to obtain, or elitist. We want to bring salad to the table of all Americans.
We do this by sharing the variety that salad can offer. Salad is more than a tasteless pile of greens offered reluctantly as a side. Salad can be a delicious meal in itself, a meal that’s inexpensive and easy to prepare.
Along with our readers and fellow saladvocates, we will raise demand for salad. If Americans begin demanding healthier, fresher, and better tasting food, our system will be forced to supply. With more supply comes more availability and accessibility of salad for all.
Who we are
The Salad Lobby has two ingredients: the creative, path-blazing brain of Lindsay Sauvé and the marketing, digital brawn of Peter Korchnak. Lindsay is The Salad Lobby’s soul, Peter the system.
Where we are
The Salad Lobby is based in Portland, Oregon, USA. Our initial geographic scope is the United States of America where we live and where we see the greatest need. Items from our Shop ship to all but a handful of countries.
