LA JOLLA, Calif., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Kashi, the premier natural food and lifestyle company, has launched its latest Facebook campaign with Spoons Across America, the source for children's culinary education, dedicated to educating children, teachers and families about the benefits of healthy eating. The campaign is part of a long-term initiative, the Kashi REAL Project™, which champions the work of nonprofits that help more people enjoy real food through greater access and education. Through Dec. 20, 2012, for each person who helps share Spoons Across America's message via Kashi's Facebook page, Kashi will donate $10 to the organization, up to $35,000*.
Spoons Across America offers food- and nutrition-based educational programs for elementary and middle school students to inspire healthy eating and help them learn about the origin of their food. In one program, The Dinner Party Project, elementary students learn about nutrition, local and seasonal eating, cooking skills, and the importance of sharing family meals, all while producing a dinner party for their families.
"Helping more people enjoy real food is a mission that inspired us over 25 years ago, and we're thrilled to continue supporting organizations like Spoons Across America that are making a difference in their communities," said Lara Gish, Ambassador of REAL Goodwill at Kashi. "While overcoming the Real Food Deficit is a huge challenge, these nonprofits are making great progress and we're deeply committed to the mission we share with them."
Kashi's 2012 Featured Organizations
The Kashi REAL Project has also championed seven additional nonprofits this year throughout the country. By featuring the organizations on its cereal boxes and supporting them with $700,000 in donations to date, primarily through Facebook campaigns, Kashi is helping to support the following activities:
- Common Vision: Planting approximately 35 orchards in California schools and community centers, which will provide thousands of pounds of free, fresh fruit in the years ahead
- Cooking Matters Colorado®: Providing 1,000 people with the skills and resources they need to prepare healthy meals on a limited budget
- Junior Leagues' Kids in the Kitchen: Awarding Junior Leagues in 30 communities with grants ranging between $2,500 and $5,000 to support their program which provides nutrition education and hands-on cooking activities to help kids and families lead healthier lifestyles
- Just Food: Offering more than 7,000 New Yorkers more fresh produce and cooking classes through its "Fresh Food For All" program
- Solid Ground: Introducing hands-on gardening, nutrition and cooking classes for more than 150 kids and families in Seattle
- Wholesome Wave: Assisting with their Double-Value Coupon program which allows more than 39,000 families in need to have greater access to local, affordable, fresh produce by doubling the value of federal assistance or food stamps at more than 300 farmers markets across the country
In support of the nonprofit HealthCorps®, the program recently helped provide more than 14,000 students with nutrition, culinary and gardening lessons at 66 schools across the country to help them realize the importance of making healthy choices.
"Kashi and HealthCorps share a vision for healthy living. Through the Kashi REAL Project, we've been able to help more high school students and faculty members make positive, lifelong changes by sharing the importance of making healthier choices," said Michelle Bouchard, president of HealthCorps. "As we strive to reach our goal of empowering high schools in all 50 states with our mission, we're grateful for Kashi's continued dedication to our cause."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
