FN: A Brand To Believe In

by in View All Posts, January 6th, 2009

Hello, 2009!  Thank you, 2008!

I’m sure we can all agree that 2008 brought new ideas, concepts, challenges and solutions.  Last year also introduced me to a brand that I can honestly believe in.  I have to admit, I am quite the skeptic when it comes to big business doing good deeds.  However, since I’ve been working here I’ve had the opportunity to be part of projects that are much bigger than making TV. 

Aside from the obvious perks, I now get to actually give back to the community and work with the Good Food Gardens.  It is purely volunteer and I have to admit that I am learning tons about gardening and sustainable food practices.  (Not to mention, I get to spend time in the kitchens with Sarah Copeland who heads the project.)

The themes for my 2009 are REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE, LISTEN, LEARN, GET INVOLVED and GIVE BACK!  I have a feeling this is one New Year’s Resolution I won’t be pushing off.

Cheers!

Kendra, Operation Foodie

    Kendra, Happy New Year! I’m glad that you decided to “dish” about Good Food Gardens. Until your post, truthfully I’ve never heard of it but after visiting their website its easy to see where your enthusiasm for the project comes from. Giving back can be one of the most rewarding experiences and I’m thrilled that the FN family stands behind such commendable projects such as Share Our Strength and Good Food Gardens. I adore your 2009 themes – keep us updated on how you’re doing with them!
