We Made the List(s)!

We’re always thrilled to get some recognition for what we’re doing and that’s been happening more and more.  We just found out that we’re going to be included in the prestigious 2017 Good Food Org Guide presented by The James Beard Foundation and Food Tank (we were in the 2016 Guide as well).

We’re also now listed in ReFed’s Food Waste Innovator Data Base for working on ways to reduce food waste and fight hunger at the same time.   How cool is that!

We also made a very special Rodale’s Organic Life Magazine list – very, very cool!

And, finally, we’re on the Food Tank List of most innovative companies to watch in 2017!

By the way – we agree!

The #GiveHealthy Movement is Growing!

If you live in the Northeast US, spring is the time to plant your seeds.  Look for the sprouts and then watch those plants grow.

We (and many, many others) planted a big seed earlier this month with the launch of the #GiveHealthy Movement.  It’s sprouted and now its growing!  Check out all of the #GiveHealthy Partners, Ambassadors and Advisory Board Members.  And more pics below from the #GiveHealthy launch!

#GiveHealthy Launches!

We announced #GiveHealthy in March and the #GiveHealthy movement launched at the Broccoli City Festival in Washington DC on May 6, 2017.   The Festival is about many things, including great music, culture and social impact.  And its about healthy food access, particularly in urban areas.   A perfect place to launch our movement to change the most common form of giving in the US so that everyone donates healthy food.  Some pretty cool shots of people getting excited and having fun at the #GiveHealthy launch!

 

#GiveHealthy Gets Going!

#GiveHealthy is the start of a movement and it starts today!  That’s big news.  We’re thrilled to be a part of it.

Donating food is the most popular form of giving in the United States.  More people donate food than watch the Superbowl.  That’s the good news.

The not good news?  A lot of the food people donate is unhealthy.  Highly processed canned goods.

Why does this matter?  Because hunger is a health issue.  People struggling with hunger also face high rates of diet related health issues – obesity, diabetes, cancer and more.

They need healthy food, not just any old food.

That’s where #GiveHealthy comes in.  It’s designed to raise things like fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and other healthy food and to heighten public awareness that hunger is a health issue.

So instead of donating this:

People donate things like this:

This is what healthy food looks like!

I hope you will check out #GiveHealthy and Get Involved.
