“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.

Learn more about the story behind the #RainbowTacoChallenge and how your support can help us reach another 1,000 schools ASAP here.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated hunger and food insecurity across the country and shined a spotlight on the inequalities in our food system – it also expanded awareness around the power of our existing child feeding programs. School foodservice programs have fed more meals than food banks in most communities. Link in bio to learn more.

Feeding kids consistent nutritious meals not only protects their health and makes them less likely to develop chronic processed food-related diseases later in life, it also relieves anxiety. With USDA's new summer food relief plan and community feeding programs, we can keep American children hunger-free for summer.
