The Beet is your all-in-one guide to eating a more plant-based diet. If you want to boost your energy, feel your best, and reach your personal health and wellness goals by adding more plant foods to your diet, we’re here to help. We're a new plant-based platform where food, health news, product launches, plant-based restaurant reviews, expert advice, and the mainstreaming of plant-based culture meet. The Beet covers everything from where to "Find Vegan Near Me" to the latest plant-based or vegan food products that make it even easier to eat plant-based and love it. We cover the newest studies that inspire us to want to be healthier (the "why" go plant-based) and how to get the right amount of protein, iron, calcium, B12, and other essential nutrients (the "how"). Eating more plants is great for you— whether you’ve just tried your first Beyond Burger or you’re already eating plant-based a few days a week, whether you call yourself a vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, flexitarian, plant-leaning, plant-forward or plant-based – on The Beet, you’ll find what you need to reach your goals. The more you know, the more you care about where your food comes from, including the practices used in factory farming, and how our food choices impact the planet, climate change and the ethical treatment of animals. Whatever your motivation –to align your food choices with your ethics, your health goals or your concern for the environment – The Beet is here to get you further on your plant-based journey. Whatever your motivation: To be healthier, to lose weight, to feel less bloated, to perform better on the bike or tennis court, to stay heart-healthy, or to get off the meds, or if you want to eat in a way that is best for the environment, spares animal suffering or to align with your value system, or for any other reason, we can help guide you toward your plant-based lifestyle goals. (A note: We don't call ourselves vegan but we want to be a resource for anyone who wants to eat plant-based and eschew animal products, so if a non-vegan ingredient such as honey is used in a recipe we will always tell you and give you the substitute of something fully plant-based that can work instead).

La Hacienda Santa Teresa se encuentra ubicada en el Estado Aragua, al norte de Venezuela. Esta hacienda fue fundada en 1796 por el Conde de Tovar y es la destilería más antigua del país. Actualmente, funciona como museo, complejo agroindustrial, complejo turístico y complejo deportivo.​ Su gran especialidad es la producción del ron venezolano, sin embargo, también se ha convertido en una de las empresas más importantes del país gracias a que desarrollan diversas iniciativas sociales y económicas. La historia de la destilería comienza en 1796, cuando el Conde de Tovar funda una gran plantación de caña de azúcar en los alrededores de una de las haciendas más respetables de la época. A su muerte, la hacienda pasa a su hija Teresa, quien le da origen al nombre de estas instalaciones como Hacienda Santa Teresa. En 1885 Julius Vollmer adquiere la Hacienda y es el responsable de impulsar estas tierras montando la destilería de ron con la adquisición de un alambique europeo de cobre. Hoy en día, la destilería Hacienda Santa Teresa de Venezuela continúa en manos de la familia Vollmer, ya en su quinta generación. Gracias a su ubicación y al mantenimiento de los cultivos de caña de azúcar en las instalaciones de la hacienda, el proceso de recolección de la materia prima se hace en aproximadamente 24 horas. Una vez que la caña de azúcar se encuentra en la destilería, en la Central Azucarera pasa por un proceso que la convierte en una melaza oscura y muy espesa, caracterizada por su alta calidad. Seguidamente, esta melaza se pone a fermentar con la levadura seleccionada y que pertenece a la destilería. La Hacienda Santa Teresa cuenta con dos destilerías en su complejo: la más antigua, donde se destilan alcoholes artesanales con el que se elaboran destilados especiales; y la más nueva, de la que salen alcoholes tanto suaves como pesados. El añejamiento del ron Santa Teresa se realiza en barricas de roble blanco americano y de roble francés Limousin, con un mínimo de 24 meses de reposo, aunque muchos de ellos superan los 25 años de envejecimiento. La mezcla definitiva del ron venezolano de Hacienda Santa Teresa lo deciden los maestros roneros, y se caracterizan por ser un resultado de la mezcla de rones jóvenes y rones añejos. En 2014 fue considerada como la Mejor Destilería de Ron del Mundo en el Congreso Internacional del Ron. Y sus rones han recibido muchos premios y menciones internacionales. Además de su actividad principal, el destilado de ron, en la Hacienda Santa Teresa es posible disfrutar de otras experiencias, tales como la Cata Santa Teresa 1976, realizar un taller de coctelería y hacer la ruta Santa Teresa que consiste en un recorrido por las instalaciones para conocer el proceso productivo del ron y descubrir lo que los motivo a incluir el Rugby como uno de sus pilates de transformación. Finalmente, la Hacienda Santa Teresa también pone a disposición sus instalaciones para las realizaciones de una gran variedad de eventos.

Too Good To Go’s primary goal is to fight the growing issue of food waste. To do so, it provides a solution for food service providers to sell their food surplus, which otherwise would have been wasted at the end of the business day. However, the app is just one way the company fights food waste, as it also directly encourages households, schools and policy-makers to change their behavior and aims to influence legislation that will reduce food waste further. Too Good To Go is now the world’s largest Business To Consumer Platform aiming to fight food waste. This is via a mobile app where businesses can add the food surplus they have, and consumers can view the offer available. The application is mostly for restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets, hotels and canteens. For Too Good To Go, this is a “win-win-win solution” allowing businesses to make money out of food which would be otherwise wasted whilst reaching new customers, and consumers to access food at affordable prices to reduce food waste, all parties having a positive impact on the environment. After downloading the app, users have access to a range of meals available nearby. They can either view what’s close by or search for specific meals with different options, such as collection time, location or type of food, for instance vegan or vegetarian. Once they select their option, users receive a receipt which needs to be presented to the shop in order to receive the food bag. Typically, consumers will have access to a 3 to 5 euro “magic bag” with an original value of 10 to 15 euro, being able to buy food that’s worth three times the amount they paid. The app is now available for more than 38,000 restaurants, supermarkets, hotels, bakeries and canteens using it every month in 17 European countries. They are the B Corp certified Social Impact Company fighting food waste throughout the food system and pushing for change, because the food we waste accounts for 10% of all GHG emissions, yet is the #1 food waste action we can all take now.

Our national and state-based teams work with the entire food and grocery industry including farmers, wholesalers, manufacturers and retailers to source food and capture donations. We also collaborate with suppliers, manufacturers and transporters to produce key staple foods that don’t come in sufficient quantities via rescue channels. To distribute the food, our state teams work with an army of volunteers to pick, pack and get the food to where it’s needed.

A Fonterutoli nel Chianti Classico come a Belguardo e a Zisola vive la stessa filosofia nella valorizzazione dei vitigni autoctoni. Contemporanei dal 1435. 600 anni di attività vitivinicola, ricerca e valorizzazione del territorio nel Chianti Classico, in Maremma e Sicilia. Visita la spettacolare cantina di Castello di Fonterutoli. Da oltre sei secoli, la nostra famiglia si dedica all’attività vitivinicola con passione e impegno che si rinnovano di generazione in generazione. La continua ricerca di nuovi orizzonti qualitativi ci ha portato a estendere le nostre attività su diverse frontiere enologiche, da quella storica del Castello di Fonterutoli nel Chianti classico, verso due realtà altrettanto promettenti: Belguardo nella Maremma Toscana e Zisola nella Sicilia Sud-Orientale. Attraverso il loro potenziale espressivo vogliamo declinare in contesti diversi il nostro patrimonio di esperienza, sempre nel rispetto delle caratteristiche e delle specificità di questi grandi “terroirs”. La costante attenzione a questi valori si riflette su tutti i nostri vini, per la soddisfazione dei “connaisseurs” di tutto il mondo che riconoscono nel nome Mazzei uno dei punti di riferimento del panorama enologico italiano. Con questo spirito lavoriamo per continuare a meritare la fiducia dei nostri estimatori, nel presente e nel futuro. Since 1435 the Mazzei family has been producing unique wines with spirit and passion that are renewed from generation to generation.

Through their expressive potential we want to decline our wealth of experience in different contexts, always respecting the characteristics and specificities of these great “terroirs”. The constant attention to these values ​​is reflected in all our wines, to the satisfaction of the "connaisseurs" from all over the world who recognize in the name Mazzei one of the reference points of the Italian wine scene. With this spirit we work to continue to deserve the trust of our admirers, in the present and in the future.

End Hunger UK is a coalition of more than 40 national charities, frontline organisations, faith groups, academics and individuals working to end hunger and poverty in the UK. Whilst a significant amount has been achieved over the past few years in raising the public and political profile of hunger in the UK, we believe in working together to build a broad ‘food justice movement’ across the UK. By mobilising thousands of people engaged in tackling food poverty in its many forms, we can build a powerful movement for change. Some members of our coalition work directly and indirectly with those experiencing food insecurity. For example: Between 1st April 2018 and 31st March 2019 the Trussell Trust’s Food Bank Network provided more than 1.6 million three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis. Of this number, 577,618 were children. 9 out of 10 of Church of England parishes are involved in food provision in some way, mostly through helping to manage food banks or by providing venues, volunteers and donations in support of local food banks. Trussell Trust and independent food bank volunteers are giving more than 4 million hours of volunteer time, that would be at least £30 million a year in paid work. The amazing work being conducted by charities, community groups and individuals – as well as businesses and local authorities – will not be enough to end hunger in the UK. All members of this campaign coalition are united in their belief that to really tackle the root causes of household food insecurity, we require a concerted effort from the UK and devolved governments. Only action at this level will ensure that everyone has enough money to feed themselves and their families with good quality, healthy food. Since 2016 End Hunger campaigners have worked on issues around holiday hunger, Universal Credit and getting food insecurity measured in the UK. More than 1,000 people and 50 groups have taken action. As a result of their campaigning, the government provided £2 million in funding for school holiday food and activity programmes, annual measurement of household food insecurity has been introduced, and an extra £1.7 billion set of measures was announced in the 2018 Budget because of the increased awareness on the impact Universal Credit is having on people’s income.

Established in 2009 to address widespread hunger in South Africa, FoodForward SA connects a world of excess to a world of need by recovering quality edible surplus food from the consumer goods supply chain and distributing it to community organisations that serve the poor. More than 80% of the food recovered is nutritious food. A staggering 14 million people don't know where their next meal is coming from. One third of all food produced in South Africa is dumped in landfill, while more than 14 million people are hungry. FoodForward SA is the catalyst that connects a world of excess to a world of need. Started in 2009, FoodForward SA was established on the premise that there is a significant amount of food waste that can be harnessed to address the problem of food insecurity. We have a national network of warehouses and logistics infrastructure across the county and are well suited to manage projects on a national scale. In partnership with major food retailers such as Pick n Pay, Shoprite and Fruit & Veg, wholesalers and manufacturers, our mandate is to collect edible surplus food and non-food products for redistribution to registered and verified beneficiary organisations that offer invaluable services in the areas of child care, youth empowerment, abused women, the disabled, frail care and more, in disadvantaged communities across South Africa. More than 85% of our beneficiary organisations are involved in skills development/remedial work.

While I was in high school, I always wanted to be a lawyer, but due to financial constraints I could not become one. My interest in the justice system came when I realised that the late former president Mr Nelson Mandela was also a lawyer representing his people. I wish one day I could give back to my community and its people because my community gave us the likes of the late Steve Bantu Biko, one of the BCM Members who fought for the people of South Africa. My community is one of the underdeveloped communities of this country, but I know that one day all of this will change because I know that with education anything is possible. When a child is educated, communities will change for the better and if one community changes, then our country will change for the better as well and poverty will be no more. Education topped with one’s perseverance is the key to a bright future for all. With this pandemic people have lost their jobs and in some households you find that no one is working and people resort to drugs and alcohol, some get depressed to a point of taking their own lives. If we can start developing jobs for people, our continent would become a better place for us all. Being part of an initiative that supports the empowerment of those less privileged is one of my greatest wishes. I will be glad if all my wishes do come through because nothing is as important as education and hard work, and an educated country means a better world for us all.

1834 Dopo 25 anni passati come maestro di cucina al servizio dei Principi di Cattolica, Salvatore Alaimo riceve in dono la cappella sconsacrata di un antico palazzo nel cuore di Palermo. Sulla porta d’ingresso appende una tavola di legno con un’incisione che recita “Focacceria” e decide di cucinare per il popolo. 1848 In onore della Sicilia che festeggia l’indipendenza dai Borboni, il primo governatore del nuovo Regno organizza un banchetto proprio in Focacceria a base di sfincioni, focacce e marsala. 1851 Nasce la “focaccia maritata”, creata da Alaimo per consentire anche alla povera gente di mangiare carne: un taglio economico, ma cucinato in modo raffinato, viene aggiunto alla tradizionale “focaccia schietta” (nubile). 1860 Prima di risalire l’Italia per unificarla, Giuseppe Garibaldi si ferma a Palermo, accampandosi nella piazza della Focacceria, che per una decina di giorni diventa la sua mensa quotidiana. 1861 La nobiltà palermitana si scaglia contro la Focacceria S. Francesco, che svela e diffonde al pubblico l’ottima “pasta ch’i sardi”, fino a quel momento, preparazione riservata alle mense reali. La ricetta è la stessa utilizzata ancora oggi. 1890 Da Pirandello a Sciascia a Guttuso, sono decine gli illustri scrittori e artisti che si incontrano abitualmente alla Focacceria, che diventa così un caffè letterario, una sorta di circolo culturale. 1901 L’architetto Ernesto Basile, mentre siede insieme al noto Vincenzo Florio a un tavolo della Focacceria, disegna su una tovaglia l’attuale logo, il prospetto del locale, i tavoli in ghisa e le sedie in ferro battuto. 1902 A 60 anni dalla nascita, il locale viene definitivamente battezzato “Antica Focacceria San Francesco” e nel menù entrano nuove deliziose pietanze, presenti ancora oggi: arancine, panelle e sarde a beccafico, per citarne alcune. 1834 After 25 years spent as a cooking master in the service of the Princes of Cattolica, Salvatore Alaimo receives as a gift the deconsecrated chapel of an ancient palace in the heart of Palermo. On the front door he hangs a wooden board with an engraving that reads "Focacceria" and decides to cook for the people. 1848 In honor of Sicily, which celebrates independence from the Bourbons, the first governor of the new Kingdom organizes a banquet at the Focacceria based on sfincioni, focaccia and marsala. 1851 The “married focaccia” was born, created by Alaimo to allow poor people to eat meat: an economical cut, but cooked in a refined way, is added to the traditional “sincere focaccia” (single). 1860 Before going up to Italy to unify it, Giuseppe Garibaldi stops in Palermo, camping in the Focacceria square, which for about ten days becomes his daily canteen. 1861The Palermitan nobility lashes out against the Focacceria S. Francesco, which reveals and disseminates to the public the excellent "pasta ch'i sardi", up to that moment, a preparation reserved for royal tables. The recipe is the same still used today. 1890 From Pirandello to Sciascia to Guttuso, there are dozens of illustrious writers and artists who usually meet at the Focacceria, which thus becomes a literary café, a sort of cultural circle. 1901 the architect Ernesto Basile, while sitting together with the well-known Vincenzo Florio at a table in the Focacceria, draws the current logo, the façade of the restaurant, the cast iron tables and the wrought iron chairs on a tablecloth. 1902 60 years after its birth, the place was definitively baptized "Antica Focacceria San Francesco" and new delicious dishes enter the menu, still present today: arancine, panelle and sardines a beccafico, to name a few.
