Summer is here! What does that mean? If your high school was like mine, it means stacks of summer reading. We here at TriplePundit work hard to bring you all the news you need to know about sustainability in business – and we do it all year round. But sometimes, let’s face it, you need to go deeper into a subject – and there are many great books to help you do that.

That’s why every week this summer, we’ll be giving away a CSR-related book to one lucky reader.

This week’s book is Raising Dough: The Complete Guide to Financing a Socially Responsible Food Business by Elizabeth Ü

From the publisher:

Raising Dough is an unprecedented guide that provides social entrepreneurs—as well as their potential supporters—the tools necessary to enable more food businesses to launch and thrive.

  1. My friend and I have been fantasizing about starting up our own BBQ shack and this book would give us the tools we would need to get it going in a sustainable way. We could turn our dream of being BBQ masters into a reality. Pretty exciting!

  2. One of my best friends has started a sustainable food business and I would love to gift this to her and her husband. They are trying to open a restaurant/learning space in NYC, but have not been able to secure the funds to open a location yet. Check them out at and help me, help them, succeed!

  3. So many colleagues work in local food systems and food justice, and our regional Slow Money chapter is focused on food and ag. This book appears to be a bridge between the two.
