Support "Lunchbox Envy": a Great Cause and Cookbook for Kids!
Hi Friends and Family,
Please take a minute to follow the link above to a great project which my stepmom Martha Haynes is involved with and watch the video to find out more! Please check out and support their project!
She is part of a group called Locally Delicious. Here is a bit about them taken off of their website,
Locally Delicious is a small non-profit organization in Humboldt County, California that advocates for healthy food and localized, sustainable food systems through education and grant-giving.
A few of you may remember the cookbook which Martha helped write:(taken from their website) Locally Delicious, now in its second edition, is 314 full-color pages packed with more than 200 recipes instructing readers on how to use local ingredients, where to find them and why it's important for their health and the health of the planet to do so.
Their latest project, Lunchbox Envy, is a cookbook aimed at kids 8 years and up on how to make lunches that are easy to prepare by families of all income levels.
I am very proud of Martha's involvement with this project. Please support their book with a pledge of $5.00, $10.00, or more. Please pass on the link. As of July 2, there are only 9 days left to raise the $15,000 needed to continue with this project. If you are a mother, a father, aunt, or uncle ... if you are a chef or a teacher ... if you are someone that cares about what are kids are eating and want to help teach them how to eat correctly, then please support this cause! Teach our kids that it can be a fun interactive experience! To make a pledge, please follow the Kickstarter link. I have included it again here:
By the way, at the 8 second mark in the video, my stepmom Martha is the one with the t-shirt that says "Badass"!!! Gotta love her! She is also at the 2:50 minute mark wearing the red sweater over her shoulders. I am so proud of her.
