Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Food & Water Watch works to ensure the food, water and fish we consume is safe, accessible and sustainably produced. So we can all enjoy and trust in what we eat and drink, we help people take charge of where their food comes from, keep clean, affordable, public tap water flowing freely to our homes, protect the environmental quality of oceans, force government to do its job protecting citizens, and educate about the importance of keeping the global commons — our shared resources — under public control. Increasing our online activism is an important goal, and we have seen significant growth in the numbers of our online activists. In 2010, Food & Water Watch’s email list had grown from 26 people in 2006 to 193,870 people. Over the two-year period of 2010-11, we have continued to grow at the rate at which we planned. Food & Water Watch had a total of 13 offices at the end of 2011. We completely redesigned our website in 2010, launching the new and greatly improved version in January of 2011. We increased the number of unique visitors to our site in 2011 by 697,441- a 70% increase. There were 1,212,100 unique visitors to foodandwaterwatch.com in 2010, and 1,909,541 in 2011.  FWW produces two primary types of research products – shorter form pieces such as fact sheets, issue briefs, etc., and longer, more in-depth full research reports.  Food & Water Watch appeared in at least 2225 news stories in 2010 - either in newspapers, magazines, blogs, or on TV news. In 2011, that number increased to 2467.  In 2011, Food & Water Watch implemented its Food and Water Justice Program, which enables us to greatly expand our fight against factory farming.

Evidence of Impact

There are no summaries available for this organization.

We must work from the top down and the bottom up at the same time. Food and Water Watch's watch-dogging of the current status of water as a human right and the protection of water sources is crucial in the realization of water recognized and enforced as a human right. They have influenced policies, supported successful campaigns to stop corporate takeover of water internationally, and have raised awareness in communities where water quality is at risk. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Organizational Strengths

There are no summaries available for this organization.

I'm impressed by their campaign drives to influence policy - still employing door to door canvassing and awareness raising. Also, raising awareness around larger picture of water issues beyond WASH and how it connects to food, energy, livelihood and other social challenges. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Areas for Improvement

There are no summaries available for this organization.

As an activist, I'm often finding myself hungering for campaign drives that don't focus on who's wrong and who's right, but what options can make our lives better - choose options that provide opportunities over the blame game. This kind of tone engages me and I feel more compelled to take action. Nonprofit Senior Staff
