They simply swipe their choices into their lunchbox from a large selection of fruits, vegetables, proteins, and snacks. Along the way, they learn that a balanced lunch includes items from each category. Parents can easily personalize and edit the items available to their kids.

A Food Forest is a gardening technique or land management system that mimics a woodland ecosystem but substitutes in edible trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals.  Fruit and nut trees are the upper level, while below are berry shrubs, edible perennials and annuals.  Companions or beneficial plants are included to attract insects for natural pest management while some plants are soil amenders providing nitrogen and mulch.  Together they create relationships to form a forest garden ecosystem able to produce high yields of food with less maintenance.

FeelGood

http://www.feelgood.org

We are a volunteer youth movement of changemakers committed to ending global hunger in our lifetime.
Around the country, we’re raising money for the end of hunger by running FeelGood Grilled Cheese Delis on our college campuses. Every penny we raise—100%—is invested in hunger-ending organizations with a proven track record of success.
And because ending hunger is about raising awareness as well as money, we also use our delis as a point of dialogue. Walk up to order a sandwich and through displays, literature and even the menu board, you’ll see how we transform our delis into a place where people learn about the causes of global hunger, and the hunger-ending strategies that really work.

Coffee Stories

http://www.coffeestories.co

Coffee Stories is a pay-it-forward storytelling project offering a voice to everyday coffee shop-goers via gifted coffees. Coffee Stories was created to spread coffee kindness and create community, to offer a medium for our society to empathize with each other over common pieces -- coffee and stories. We're striving to make ordering a 'coffee stories' coffee' as ubiquitous and quotidian as ordering a coffee for yourself; to leave the coffee shop kinder, more hospitable than we found it, and to listen attentively to what others think, feel, and are moved by.
