Newport, Kentucky (April 6, 2004) Our Family Farm announced today the launch of its “Making a Difference” campaign, an educational outreach program designed to change eating patterns of children in America. The company is offering schools, daycare centers and parent/children’s organizations their free “Making a Difference” packet with ideas for how families can make better nutritional choices both at home and at school. The kit includes:
1. The USDA food guide pyramid and plan for children
2. Information on “How to Help Children Build a Healthy Pyramid”
3. Information on Our Family Farm including product samples, information and allergen checklist
“It will obviously take a strong grass roots effort – parents, educators and social organizations – to affect change in the midst of this national emergency – how our children eat! We want to be a part of a directed social force that says “NO” to trans fats, chemically laden food and high sugar/fat content developed for taste addiction and convenience instead of for nutritional value,” says Annie Bennett, President of Our Family Farm. Pledging to “Bake the World a Better Place”, the company is known for its social activism by delivering net profits to charitable organizations that protect, nurture and empower children. Our Family Farm cookies and crackers do not contain hydrogenated oils, trans fats, artificial colors and flavors, preservatives or eggs. Many of the ingredients are certified organic. “To be a part of the solution is important – this was my father’s dream when he started Our Family Farm,” adds Annie.
To order the “Making a Difference” kit, please call 859.261.2627 or email [email protected]. Please specify your school, daycare center or organization plus contact person.
Our Family Farm was founded by Ray Faragher, a long time social activist, and his two social worker daughters, Annie and Teri. Other family members, sharing the same vision, assist them day-to-day in the business. The company makes a line of delicious, natural, kosher-certified cookies and crackers for children and their families. Our Family Farm products are available nationally in select supermarkets, natural food stores, specialty food outlets as well as mail order.
