Food for Thought Campaign

Food for Thought (FFT) is a grassroots campaign created to educate people about FTD, while raising money to help fight this disease. FFT 2017 is the fifth annual campaign timed to begin during World FTD Awareness Week, from September 24 through October 8, 2017.

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.

Food for Thought 2016 has ended and AFTD would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who was involved. Please keep an eye out for updates on participating in Food for Thought 2017. Here are the final results from Food for Thought 2016:

  • Hosts = 62
  • Events = 55
  • States = 31
  • Raised = $153,776
