We are all jumping for joy thanks to ALL of your participation and support! It’s been a Barnraiser of an event and we’re so grateful for each and every one of you for backing our Joyful 12 School Project and in turn making a big difference in the health of Novato Community’s families & children!!
We can’t thank you enough, knowing that this is just the first step in our bigger goal of a nationwide school food movement effort. But like anything worthy, it takes a lot of people and effort to create a healthy community, supporting one another for the greater good of our future.
The support of Foundations such as The Vita Fund, Whole Foods Market, NUSD’s Wellness Program & Bay Leaf Kitchen was so critical, but it’s the rest of our community of 150 supporters(!) that really demonstrates the power of individuals.
Collectively, $20,000 is enough to ensure every member of the school gets free access to the Joyful 12, the 4th & 5th graders can benefit from Bay Leaf Kitchen’s Jr Chef Helper cooking and mentor program, and provides a month-long vegetable cooking challenge with lessons each week for parents and kids at the school, focusing on the vegetable of the week!!
This is just the first step towards a nationwide initiative and we couldn’t have done it without all of your help!
We are still accepting donations through our fiscal sponsor, the Social Good Fund, 501(c)3. If you’d like to help us re-produce our Joyful 12 School Project in schools across the nation, any amount (yes, it’s tax deductible) helps! Just click the donate button below:

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, with our utmost gratitude!!
