This week I am excited to announce that I have taken on an Ambassador role for Jamie Oliver’s Food Foundation and his latest campaign, Feed US Better.  As an Ambassador, I have brought together a team of Real Food Advocates committed to raising funds and awareness for the Food Foundation -  we would love your support!

Feed US Better is an initiative promoting the mission of the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation.  Through cooking events, online networks and a global Feed US Better Day to be held in May,  the Feed US Better campaign will strive to educate children about food, teach families to cook and motivate people to stand up for their right to better food.

I am so passionate about the fabulous programs the Food Foundation has put into place to reach families.  Because of the their strong support system and the positive influence of Jamie Oliver, they have been able to reach and help families, children, schools and businesses break free of the processed food rut and learn how to prepare real, fresh food.  Because of their broad reach the Food Foundation is able to do what us smaller Real Food Bloggers and Advocates can not accomplish on our own.  But we can support them and help them obtain the  funding to give these programs the long life they deserve – and I need the support of the Out of the Box Food community to accomplish this.

How can you help?

  • DONATE – Please DONATE by clicking on the Donate button on the right-hand side of this page.   No donation is too small.  Your tax deductible donation will go towards funding the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation’s Food Education Program. The Food Education program funds all projects of the Food Foundation including their network of Food Revolution kitchens, the Food Revolution Cooking Classroom Big Rig, Training tools and education for the Food Revolution community leaders, Groceries and supplies for the cooking classroom, School Kitchen Garden pilot program and an overall growth of their grassroots movement. Every donation you make helps the Food Foundation continue to work and improve the health prospects of the next generation.
