Pursuing truth and transparency for public health

Donors, IRS Filings & Governing Documents

At U.S. Right to Know, we believe that transparency – in the food system and in politics – is crucial to building a better, healthier food system.  And we walk our talk.

We are not required to disclose our major donors.  We do so voluntarily.  Following is a list of our major donors.
