One Click, $100,000 for Real Food

Dear Food Project Friends and Supporters,

We have some exciting news – our own David Schwartz of the Real Food Challenge is one of five finalists for the VH1 Do Something Award! If David wins, the Real Food Challenge will get $100,000 to help galvanize this movement to bring fresh, local food to college campuses. The award will be presented on a national live broadcast on VH1, bringing the message of the Real Food Challenge to a huge audience!

David, a cofounder of RFC, is an alumnus of The Food Project’s youth programs and a former TFP [youth] board member. He’s channeled the skills, knowledge, and passion from his time as a TFP youth towards working for positive change on an even larger stage.

Help us make sure David wins.

National Programs at The Food Project
An initiative of The Food Project, the Real Food Challenge (RFC) is making healthy, fair, and sustainable food a reality across the country. RFC works with incredible student leaders who are passionate about making change at their school. The goal? Shift $1 billion of existing college food budgets away from industrial factory farms and to healthy, local, organic, and fair trade alternatives. To date RFC has trained over 3,000 student leaders and has already shifted $35 million to local sources!
