Beyond Meat Partners With Social Change Fund to Fight Racial Inequality
Beyond Meat will partner with the newly formed nonprofit Social Change Fund to fight disparities in the Black community through initiatives tied to social justice, education, and health equity. The Social Change Fund was created by Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and a group of Black industry executives in response to the continued issue of racial injustice.
“Beyond Meat is dedicated to serving broader social goals, using what’s on the center of the plate as a critical starting point,” said Ethan Brown, Founder and CEO of Beyond Meat. “And we are excited to support and work with the Social Change Fund initiative to address racial inequalities in nutrition access and health outcomes in America.”
“I’ve been a longtime supporter of Beyond Meat and am excited to welcome them as a founding partner into the Social Change Fund. Like the Social Change Fund, I know that Beyond Meat is committed to progress for our communities. I look forward to all the good that we can continue to do together,” said Chris Paul, Beyond Meat investor and ambassador.
The Social Change Fund is on a mission to invest in and support organizations that are working to liberate Black people, as well as advocate for indigenous people and communities of color. In partnership with influential organizations, the Social Change Fund will work to accelerate social change and sustainably build a fair, equitable society. Chris Paul believes that food is foundational to well-being and that nutritious, tasty options should be available to all. Earlier this year, Chris Paul and Beyond Meat CEO and Founder Ethan Brown joined Michelle Obama’s Partnership for a Healthier America to discuss the future of food and the role of companies like Beyond Meat in creating health equality.
