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 fundraising campaign focusing on food and FTD education. Held the last week of September and 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.

Event hosts tell their stories and make people personally aware of FTD, while serving food and raising funds to support AFTD’s mission. Any event can be part of Food for Thought – even a “virtual” one online – as long as food and FTD education are involved.

Food for Thought 2017 has ended…

Thank you to everyone involved, especially the 63 hosts who helped raise more than $178,000 for AFTD!
