Taste Quest is all about strengthening the community. This means we need as much community involvement as we can get. There are many ways to get involved.
Donations make it possible for us to provide a quality experience for kids learning all about food at no cost to them. Our goal is to keep the Taste Quest magazine and app freely available and flowing with fresh content on a regular basis.
Sponsors make two gifts, one to Taste Quest, and one to the beneficiary nonprofit featured in each issue. This second gift works on a pledge-per-point system, with donations dependent on how many points Team Taste Quest (kid players) win and log on the Taste Quest app. For example, a grocery store might pledge $5 per point; the kids win 1000 points so that store donates $5000 to the featured food bank.
We need your help to spread the word about the Taste Quest project. We welcome partners who can connect us with parents, educators, libraries, gyms, healthcare professionals, after-school programs, camps, food industry professionals, and anyone else you can think of who needs to participate. We invite you to share about Taste Quest by word-of-mouth, social media (with grownups), newsletters, blogs, podcasts, publications, billboards, blimps, Kiss-Cam, or anything else you got.
KIDS: We want you! Taste Quest needs ideas and content for the magazine and the app. Send your inspirations, stories, photos, and recipes to our headquarters or post them to our Pinterest board.
GROWNUPS: We want you! Taste Quest needs lots of help developing content, spreading the word, raising funds, and distributing the magazines once they come out. Contact Headquarters to get started.
Would you want to host a scavenger hunt in your grocery store? Would you want to set up a cooking demo for kids? Would you want to feature kids’ food writing in your publication? Would you want to create a Food Olympics at your Farmers market? Would you want to build dioramas out of vegetables? Anything goes with Taste Quest games, and we invite you to get creative with how you’d like to participate. Contact Headquarters to brainstorm.
