Rudi's Organic Bakery, the maker of some pretty yummy vegan-friendly breads, has partnered with Chef Ann Cooper to "revolutionize" school lunches. If you're not familiar with Chef Ann Cooper, she's the bad-ass Renegade Lunch Lady who has made it her mission to advocate for healthier options in school cafeterias.
Anyway, earlier this summer, Rudi's (click here for a handy list of their vegan breads) invited fans to create artwork for reusable plastic sandwich boxes for its "Let's Doodle Lunch" contest. More than 18,000 designs were submitted, and fans had a chance to vote for their fave between July 1st and 31st. For every fan who voted, Rudi's donated $1 to Chef Ann's "The Lunch Box" campaign. The winning box will become Rudi's official reusuable sandwich box, and anyone with three proofs of purchase can get a free one from Rudi's between now and September 30th. For every sandwich box sent out, they'll donate another $1 to Chef Ann's cause.
The winner hasn't been publicly named yet, and I don't know how much was raised. But nonetheless, Rudi's has offered to give away a fun art kit to one lucky Vegan Crunk reader as part of the promotion. The art kit, which would be awesome for someone with kids or someone who is a big kid at heart (like me!), contains a collection of paints, markers, and colored pencils, a sketch pad, a reusable bag, a beret (fun!!), and coupons for Rudi's.
I don't usually do non-food related giveaways, but I love Rudi's bread. And I think this is a great cause. The more we can spread the word and support healthy school lunches, the better.
For a chance to win the giveaway, just leave a comment letting me know your favorite sandwich. That's it. I'm not doing the whole Facebook/Twitter for extra entries thing this time. No reason. But feel free to tweet away anyway!
I'll randomly select a winner on Sunday night. Good luck!
