Make a Donation and Get a Top Chef to Cook for You!

The National School Lunch Program feeds more than 31 million children every day. And a full 1/3 to 2/3 of the calories those students consume come from school lunch. For many students (many = millions), school lunch is the ONLY complete meal they receive in a day and those numbers are increasing. Free and reduced school lunch participation rose 16% in 2009 and the U.S. Dept of Agriculture announced that more than one in seven American households struggled to put enough food on the table in 2008.

So -- without even mentioning health costs and problems related to the obesity epidemic -- we can say with certainty that school lunch directly affects children in every school district in America ... including yours.

If you care what children eat, you should care about school lunch
If you care about the quality of schools, you should care about school lunch
If you care about the society we're creating, you should care about school lunch
If you care about any of the above, support our film!

So...what does this have to do with Top Chef? How about this: for a pledge of $7500 or more you will receive one gourmet meal prepared for you and up to 5 friends by TOP CHEF season 4 WINNER Stephanie Izard. We will travel to your home with Stephanie, film the evening, edit the footage, and then deliver it to you as a memento of the event. (bonus: we will also clean up after the party ... huge).

Read more about the project and get a link to the trailer, plus make a pledge here. This project will only be funded if at least $7,000 is pledged by May 18, 12:59am EDT. All Top Chef has pledged $ - will you?
