Hello there! Welcome to Pilot's CrowdRise page supporting FoodCorps - one of the six non-profit organizations we've chosen to focus on this giving season!
There are more than 79 million children in public schools across the country and while one in four of those children struggle with hunger, one in three are obese. FoodCorps mission is to connect kids to healthy food in school, so they can lead healthier lives and reach their full potential.
More than 75% of FoodCorps schools had measurably healthier school food environments by the end of the school year, and in schools with more of FoodCorps’ hands-on learning activities, the children are eating three times as many fruits and vegetables. FoodCorps hopes to build a future in which all our nation’s children––regardless of class, race, or geography––know what healthy food is, care where it comes from, and eat it every day. Learn more about their work here.
That brings us to the brass tacks - we've set a goal of raising $4,000 for each of the NPOs on our list, and we need your help to meet (and hopefully surpass) this number!
It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season. There are bills to pay, parties to attend, gifts to buy and Black Friday deals to nab! But we're hoping this #GivingTuesday campaign resonates with our friends and family as an opportunity to connect with the true spirit of the holidays - one that's centered around generosity, humility, compassion, and kindness.
Thanks for stopping by our page and supporting the FoodCorps cause!
