LOS ANGELES, Sept. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CAULIPOWER ®, the fastest-growing pizza brand, #1 cauliflower-crust pizza, and #1 gluten-free pizza in the U.S., announces its Nominate Your School initiative for parents or guardians of K-12 students to nominate a public school to win an edible teaching garden, pizza, and scholarship for the winning child.
For every entry received, CAULIPOWER will donate $1 towards school nutrition programs with the brand's long-time partner OneSun1, a program creating edible gardens in underserved schools and educating kids about where real food comes from. In addition to receiving a OneSun Teaching Garden2 at their child's school, the winning entrant will also receive a one-year supply of CAULIPOWER and a $1,000 scholarship for their child. Now through October 15th, 2018, parents, students, teachers, and mentors 18-and-over can enter one of two ways: via an Instagram post tagging #CAULIPOWERYourSchool and @CAULIPOWERED showing why their school should get a teaching garden; or by submitting an entry at eatCAULIPOWER.com/GrowYourSchool. Every website entrant will receive a coupon for $2 off CAULIPOWER as a special thank you for supporting healthy food in schools.
Since CAULIPOWER's inception in March 2017, the beloved pizza brand has supported OneSun, with a percentage of its profits dedicated to the fight against childhood obesity by contributing to the creation of vegetable gardens at underserved schools throughout the country. In partnership with noted child-nutrition activist and health advocate Kelly Meyer, these gardens become real-life learning laboratories for students to experience what it means to be healthy and learn how to cultivate plants, harvest produce, cook healthy dishes, and ultimately understand the value of good eating habits – all while having fun in the fresh air and working with their hands under one sun.
"Few things inspire me more than teaching young kids about the magic of what vegetables can do - even in pizza!" said Gail Becker, CEO and Founder of CAULIPOWER. "When children learn the importance of nutritious eating early on, they are set up well for a strong, productive and healthy future. "
"School nutrition needs some vegucation and what better way than by providing students with the opportunity to learn right from a garden at their school," said Kelly Meyer, founder of OneSun. "Our partnership with CAULIPOWER helps get students, schools and parents excited about healthier options and have a little fun on the side!"
