Support Food Education Projects by Back-to-School Shopping Using Our Giving Assistant and Help Raise Funds for the Food Revolution
It’s that time of year again, back-to-school! And this year as you get your kids ready to start a new school year, you can also help support better food education at the same time!
By downloading our free Food Revolution Giving Assistant you can help raise funds to support our food education projects while you make those important back-to-school purchases online. As we develop our projects and start to roll out we’ll be making sure you’re the first to know!
It’s really easy to take part in our back-to-school campaign; all you need to do is download the Food Revolution Giving Assistant browser app. Once installed (available for Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer) every time you shop online, a portion of your sale will be donated to the Food Revolution. So as you get your notebooks, school uniforms and lunch boxes you’ll be fundraising for free, investing in better food education and standing up for real food!

Where To Do Your Back-to-School Shopping!
Need to know where to make your back-to-school purchases and make sure you’re supporting the Food Revolution all at the same time? Here are just some of our online retail partners that work with our Giving Assistant to make sure a percentage goes directly to our food education project, props to them!
From laptops to lunch bags to T.I. calculators, the Giving Assistant gives 1.6% of your order to the Food Revolution. Let’s also not forget Amazon offers college students and moms Amazon Prime, which comes with free 1-day shipping and discounts.
When you order a new backpack, pencils, pens, ink, paper, index cards, Post-It notes, and anything in between at Staples.com, the Giving Assistant gives up to 2% of your order to the Food Revolution. Plus, Staples is offering free shipping on orders over $45.
Calling all college students! Rather than buying this year’s textbooks – why not rent them? You don’t have to worry about reselling them and it’s significantly cheaper - save up to 85% on textbooks! When you rent your textbook from Chegg, the Giving Assistant gives up to 4% of your order to the Food Revolution.
In addition to Amazon, Staples, and Chegg, hundreds of other online retailers generate funds for the Food Revolution. See a list of our retail partners here.
Help us to change the way people eat by educating every child about food, empowering families by arming them with the skills and knowledge to cook again, and inspiring everyone to stand up for their rights to better food.
Our Giving Assistant users have so far raised a total of $10,000 helping us to start development of our hands-on unique training programs! THANK YOU for your amazing support. If you haven’t already, you can join the 3,000+ current users and help make a difference. Simply download our Food Revolution Giving Assistant and make your purchases count this year.
