“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.

Ensuring that all students have regular access to real food at school builds a sense of security and ownership over the food they eat. Kids today are more connected to the world than previous generations. By providing them with a foundation in nutrition education and environmental awareness, they learn how the food they choose to eat is at the core of both.

Good health starts with getting real food into the hands of those who need it most. We advocate for an equitable food system by increasing real food access in our schools and providing real food education. Our school district certification program works with schools that have a high percentage of free and reduced-cost meal recipients to offer sustainably produced, real foods to kids who would otherwise lack access to nutritious foods.

Happy World Health Day! The pandemic has led to a rise in poverty and food insecurity exacerbating health inequalities around the world and in the United States. One of the best ways to combat health inequalities is by creating equity in our food system – good health starts with getting real food into the hands of those who need it most.
