AFTD’s Food for Thought

Food for Thought (FFT) is a grassroots campaign created to educate people about FTD, while raising money to help fight this disease. FFT 2016 is the fourth annual campaign timed to begin during World FTD Awareness Week, this year FFT will run for two weeks, from September 25 through October 9, 2016.

As we all know, FTD is life-altering for those affected as well as for their loved ones.  Yet this disease is little known and poorly understood.  This campaign seeks to raise funds to fight FTD, while raising awareness across the country, with some flavor.

Our goal for Food for Thought 2016 is to have 125 events in 45 states raise $250,000. If you’re ready to put your state on the map, simply fill out this contact form and AFTD’s Grassroots Events Coordinator, Bridget Graham, will be in contact with more details.

AFTD volunteers hosted 61 Food for Thought events in 32 states and Washington, D.C., and people in eight countries joined forces to host approximately 20 additional awareness events during the first ever World FTD Awareness Week!

The red states above have already committed to hosting a FFT event. Will you be the one to put your state on the map and bring awareness to all 50 states? If your state is already on the map, it’s okay because one of our goals is to have at least 125 events held across the country. Locations outside of the United States hosting a FFT 2016 event include Oxford, United Kingdom.
