The Food Literacy Project (Louisville) is joining the global #GivingTuesday Movement with their own take: #GivingFoodDay. With this effort, they are pledging to raise $6,400 to cover the associated costs of food shares for 100 families in 2018. These families participate in their Field-to-Fork Club. In this outreach program, “youth are empowered as leaders in their schools and families, sharing new knowledge and passion for healthy foods and cooking new recipes with fresh vegetables they harvest themselves. Students receive copies of the recipes they make and a produce share to take home”. That’s a cause that I, and JCP Eats as a platform, can get behind!
Occurring this year on Tuesday, November 28th, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday giving season; it inspires people to give back in impactful ways to charities/causes that are near and dear to their hearts.
The Food Literacy Project’s local partner is Cuvée Wine Table. The restaurant, located at 3598 Springhurst Blvd Louisville, KY 40241, will be donating 10% of sales on November 28th to #GivingFoodDay.

“The Food Literacy Project is transforming youth and their communities through food, farming, and the land. Established in 2006, the Food Literacy Project targets underserved youth at increased risk of diet-related illness. The Food Literacy Project has engaged over 35,000 children in becoming participants in a sustainable food system – by planting, weeding, harvesting, exploring, tasting, and cooking fresh vegetables at Oxmoor Farm.” Additionally, I feel that it is a duty of ours, as humans, to be charitable to the extent possible!
