The NY Times just published a depressing article that noted despite an increasing amount of information about what we should more of (and less of) to be healthier, many people still ignore that advice.
What should we eat more of? Real Food, and that’s the reasoning behind the Real Food Drive Campaign – to turn food drives into efforts that result in healthy food donations, instead of the usual stuff – highly processed cans of non-perishable food. People struggling with food insecurity also struggle with poor health – obesity, diabetes, hypertension, etc. – due in large part to a lack of access to healthy food.
If your organization is thinking about a running a food drive this fall – join our campaign! There’s no cost and you’ll get to raise lots of healthy food.
We have too many campaign partners to name here, but several are especially worth noting.
And, of course….
These terrific organizations are all working towards getting us all to eat healthier food for all of the benefits that come with it. Our connection is that we all recognize that so many people donate food to food drives with the best of intentions – we want to ensure those good intentions create the best impact. We have a growing number of groups around the country who have joined the campaign and who are running healthy food drives. Very exciting!
