Last Chance to Participate in the DonorsChoose Brown Bag Challenge!

20091001-brownbagchallenge.jpgWay to go, serious eaters! Through our Brown Bag Challenge, Serious Eats has raised $1,153, impacting 769 students through 5 fully-funded projects. Collectively, participants in the DonorsChoose Social Media Challenge have raised over $565,000 by 4,038 citizen philanthropists have pitched in to help bring resources to over 99,000 students in public schools across the country.

But we can do more! There are only 3 days left in the challenge, so if you've been saving your lunch money, now is the time to give to a project!

Here are 3 projects that are near completion and worthy of your support:

  • My Life in Food: Exploring Recipes as Memoir: Help a 10th grade English class buy 30 copies of Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl so students will be inspired to write their own food memoirs.
  • Growing a Healthier Youth: Since locally-sourced Mystery Meat doesn't seem to be happening any time soon, an Arizona class wants to build their own vegetable garden so they know where their lunch comes from.
  • We're Cooking up an Education! Help this classroom purchase food lab tools and learn important life skills like how to plan nutritious meals, budget their money to purchase food, and food prep and safety.
