Why Should I Make a Donation?
Food People is more than just a TV show. Our mission to “feed kids around the world a steady diet of truth, inclusion, cultural connection, digital literacy, and the knowledge it takes to feed themselves” is in full swing!
We’re working hard to implement arts integration into schools worldwide using animation, digital technology, and a fridge full of inclusive, relatable characters that provide a safe space for easy learning.
We are still in the early stages of our startup, which is self-produced – and we NEED all the help we can get! Your contributions go toward a number of mission-aligned things, like giving jobs to more artists, donating workshops to schools without arts funding, and bringing classrooms together internationally! Our Virtual Animation Labs help fund the production of the series, and the series is incorporated into our workshops.
In a nutshell, both hands feed each other so everyone can have a piece of cake! Or something like that…
