“It’s important to eat an array of colorful rainbow real foods.”
– Dr. Greene, Eat REAL’s Chief Pediatrician

The Challenge

“Rainbow” has taken on new meaning for families under quarantine due to coronavirus, and has become a sign of hope and that we are all in this together. Kids are joining in the #covidrainbow movement, creating and posting rainbows in windows and on social media.

#RainbowTacoChallenge takes the rainbow movement into the kitchen, connecting people through food and fun. Why?  Because a nutritious diet, filled with an array of colorful veggies, fruits, and whole grains is one of the best ways to support our immune systems. And, because we can all use some inspiration and new ideas for simple and healthy meals that we can make together…while still being apart.

The #RainbowTacoChallenge kicked off on Taco Tuesday, April 14, with a takeover by some of your favorite chefs, artists, and athletes.  Everyone has been sharing their “go-to” Taco recipes based on what they have on hand in their kitchen. Proceeds go towards helping schools distribute nutritious meals to low-income—and suddenly no-income—families and students who increasingly depend on these meals via school pickup or delivery.

Please join in the fun on Instagram: instagram.com/eatrealcertified.

We’d love to have you participate and challenge your friends to get involved. It’s as easy as posting a quick Instagram video or story with the hashtag #RainbowTacoChallenge and tagging @eatrealcertified.

On Aug 1st, Eat REAL board member Miguel Villarreal will be biking 10 lbs of sugar up Mt. Diablo to raise awareness of the power of Eat REAL Certification and in honor of his retirement after 40 years as a school food service director. Our program can remove 10 lbs of sugar per student per year, and this year we are on a mission to remove 1M lbs!

School foodservice teams are facing unprecedented challenges and need additional support - from local communities, their districts, and state and federal governments - to continue to fight rising hunger and food insecurity as we make our way to the other side of the pandemic.

Schools have the potential to become the critical drivers in ending childhood hunger and malnutrition. We need to continue to invest in universal free school meal programs, support foodservice teams, and facilitate the sourcing of healthful and environmentally friendly ingredients.

Earlier this month, California and Maine became the first states to pass official budget allocations for public school nutrition programs to facilitate free school meals for all K-12 public school students. The national bill introduced by @berniesanders, @repilhan, @kristengillibrand, and @repgwenmoore would make this a reality for every state across the country. Follow the link in our bio to learn more about the efforts to expand universal free school meal programs.
