We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
Think of Giving Tuesday as either an alternative or an addition to Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping. It’s a global movement but you can focus your generosity locally. In the Louisville area you can specifically support The Food Literacy Project. They are trying to raise one dollar for every kid that visited their farm last year aka $2,358. How can you help them? Well, you can always just make a donation that will be deeply appreciated. But Decca is adding some perks to the donation process to sweeten the deal for you.
1. From now until December 2 Decca will donate $1 of every drink special to the Food Literacy Project
2. If you donate at least $20 to the Food Literacy Project you can get 20% of your dinner bill at Decca on Giving Tuesday, December 2. (You’ll need to bring a copy of your your donation receipt or show it to them on your phone)
If you aren’t yet familiar with the Food Literacy Project here’s a little info:
The Food Literacy Project provides farm-based experiential education and entrepreneurial youth development programs that bring the Field-to-Fork experience to life for local youth.
Our plant, agriculture, and food education programs are available to public and private school classes, community groups, youth and after-school programs, and special needs groups. We also offer professional development for educators, focusing on ways to infuse themes of food and nutrition into curriculum. The Food Literacy Project offers a rare opportunity to engage in a sustainable food system, and to share in the pleasures and rewards of farming.
The Food Literacy Project envisions a community with a just and sustainable food system that cultivates healthy citizens. Our mission is to inspire a new generation to build healthy relationships with food, farming, and the land.
