Food for Thought
Although frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) is a devastating disease for all whose lives it touches, it remains far too little known and poorly understood. If you would like to help to change that, AFTD’s Food for Thought (FFT) campaign is for you.
Food for Thought is a grassroots fundraising and awareness campaign focusing on food and FTD education. Held the last week of September through the first week of October, FFT encompasses World FTD Awareness Week. During this time, people across the world host bake sales, restaurant benefit nights, happy hours and much more.
FFT event hosts tell their stories, making people personally aware of FTD, while serving some food and raising funds to support AFTD’s mission. Hosts can hold any type of event—even an online “virtual” one—as long as food and FTD education are involved.
