Nonprofit professionals, especially food justice folks, are brilliant, talented, and extremely good looking. However, we are burning out. There have been more conversations recently about self-care, but often we talk about actions that can be taken by individuals or organizations, not about the sector as a whole. There are factors we need to examine that may be contributing to our burning out: our territorial tendencies, how we interact with the entire nonprofit ecosystem, our often problematic fundraising strategies, and our relationships with for-profits and funders, to name a few. By examining these scarcity-based philosophies and practices and building stronger networks and communities, we can avoid burnout and be more effective in our work.
