Eating Fresh with Frigidaire and Jennifer Garner
You may remember my previous post about Frigidaire's wonderful Kids' Cooking Academy with actress Jennifer Garner. Now that summer's here, Frigidaire has kicked off their Kids' Cooking Academy Summer Session!
In an effort to teach the importance of eating fresh, Garner and Frigidaire joined parents and kids on June 9 for a day on the farm at the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, NY. Garner and a group of children picked fresh vegetables from the farm and discussed ways to prepare meals with their hand-picked ingredients.
Now, Frigidaire and Garner are inviting families everywhere to commit to eating fresh by visiting the Kids' Cooking Academy Summer session online. There, you will find great tips, videos and recipes for enjoying farm to table meals.
You can also learn more about Frigidaire's continued effort to support Save the Children's U.S. Programs. To help give more children access to fresh foods, Frigidaire has teamed up with the popular check-in app Gowalla. Simply check in at your local farmer's market via Gowalla and Frigidaire will make a $1 donation to Save the Children as part of their $500,000 commitment to the cause.
Frigidaire will also donate $1 to Save the Children when you commit to eat fresh on the MakeTimeForChange.com website. Entering is free and everyone who registers will automatically be entered to win a brand-new Frigidaire Gallery French Door Refrigerator! The new refrigerator is packed with features that make it easier than ever to preserve your farm-fresh produce, such as the Effortless Glide Crisper Drawers.
Head on over to the Kids' Cooking Academy Summer Session for more information and to make your commitment to eating fresh!
