Beecher's Flagship Foundation

 

Our company's mission to "Change the way America Eats" is at the forefront of every decision we make, large or small. The Flagship Foundation and the Pure Food Kids Workshop are distinct means to that end. Rather than working to legislate change from the top down, we have taken an alternate route to change demand for unhealthy processed food. We have specifically chosen 4th and 5th grade students for their unique cross-section; they are both open to changing ideals, as well as incredible persuaders in their own households. Our instruction model is meant to spark an interest within students, while providing the tools necessary for further exploration both in and outside the classroom.
