I am on Instagram only so I can keep an eye on what my 11-year-old and his friends post. I’ve chosen not to post photos on the site. I just don’t need another social media site sucking my time.

But, I know that Instagram is one of the fastest growing social media sites online, and there are many sustainable food advocates that use the photo app. Food Tank has created a list of 66 Instagram accounts that you should be following (if you’re already a user of the app). These individuals and organizations use the network, according to Food Tank, to “create awareness, spur action and make positive change in the food and agriculture system.”

Who is included in the list?

People you’re already familiar with like Alice Waters and Jamie Oliver made the list, along with familiar organizations like Conservation International and National Geographic.

Here are a few others that caught my attention.

  • Food Recovery Network -Food Recovery Network unites students at colleges and universities to fight food waste and hunger by recovering surplus perishable food from their campuses and surrounding communities that would otherwise go to waste and donating it to people in need.
  • Good Eggs, Inc. - Good Eggs, Inc. runs a delivery service for sustainable food in four different locations. Their Instagram depicts beautifully plated, seasonal foods, and highlights unique varieties.
  • Nom Yourself - Nom Yourself is an Instagram dedicated to vegan eating; a very impressive repertoire for one ambitious cook.
To see the entire list of 66 along with links to their accounts, you’ll need to head to the 66 Instagram Accounts Helping Cultivate a Better Food System post at Food Tank.

As you’re following these Instagram accounts, don’t forget to add Mother Nature Network to those you follow.
