The Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) is funded primarily by Individuals and Businesses who sponsor the daily Health Tips (HT) featured on a Facebook page setup to journal students planting, watering, and harvesting throughout the school year. The Health Tips are a daily infographic posted every day of the week from October until the end of the program in May.
The HT’s promote the health benefits of over 100 different vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices (including the ones grown in class). The primary vitamins and minerals of each food and research references are included in every HT.
The goal is to help influence the shopping habits of parents so they can provide the healthiest options for their children when possible. We also hope it leads to parents encouraging their children to grow at home the foods grown in class through the CFMP.
For Restaurant sponsors, we’ll choose the foods to profile based on your menu. All other sponsors are welcome to request specific foods to be profiled in the HT’s they sponsor.
Sponsors can choose to sponsor a single day or multiple days. The sponsored days are chosen by ReBuildUp or can decided by the sponsor for a small extra cost based on date availability. Sponsors have the ability to sponsor a Day of the Week, like a Monday for example, for the entire school year. Each school listing will have a calendar with it showing what days are still available for sponsorship. Individual sponsors can upload a picture or choose from available clip art to show above their name or short message celebrating a birthday, anniversary, graduation, and the like.
Business sponsors can include their logo and business name or a short message like a discount offer on the right side of the Health Tip. The uploaded image must be a jpeg, gif, or png. Non-square images will be rearranged to fit 225×225 pixels. For example, an 800×600 image will be scaled down and cropped to fit 225×225 pixels in the image box.
For a few dollars more, the picture you upload can be turned into a Cartoon Avatar.
For those not interested in the spotlight, sponsors also have the option to be anonymous with just the school’s logo and the phrase “Anonymous Sponsor” shown below it. Choose from the available schools or contact us if you’re interested in sponsoring more than one school, more than 10 days, a Day of the Week, an entire month, want to pay by check instead of online through PayPal, or have other requests.
We reserve the right to reject sponsorships we find unsuitable for our school partners. Examples of this would be alcohol advertising, political materials, and other potentially controversial products or services that might distract from our program’s focus on health and entrepreneurship.
If for some reason the program does not take place, sponsors will be given the option to redirect their funds towards another school or be refunded the amount paid minus processing and transaction fees.
