MAD: (Danish for “food”) is a nonprofit dedicated to bringing together a global food community with an appetite for change. Food is inseparable from some of the most pressing global challenges of our time, and MAD’s focus is to help inspire, educate, and find creative solutions that make a real and sustainable difference in restaurants, communities, and the world at large. MAD is preparing the restaurant community as leaders in building a better, healthier, more sustainable, and more delicious future.
MAD began as a two-day Symposium in a red circus tent pitched in Copenhagen’s harbor. Since then, MAD has grown into to include local and international events, free online education resources, and publications.
MAD has always brought people together from across the food world to have unlikely conversations that spark new and innovative ideas and action. Today, the restaurant community wants to play a role in shaping a better food future and accelerating our transition toward a more sustainable world.
MAD is building the programs that provide the global cooking community the intellectual framework, practical tools, and dynamic community to improve their profession and lead the broader public in facing the most pressing issues surrounding food today.
If you share our appetite for change and believe that food has a role to play in preserving the health of our planet, MAD is an organization for you to support. Funds raised during this campaign will enable MAD to be more active and create more positive impact.
