The Good Food Factory filmed our music video on site at the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito and we also invited the kids in their after school program to dance up a storm! The rest is history! The video was then featured on Jamie Oliver’s YouTube Channel, Website and Newsletter and the video also went on to be shown in our episode “Local, In Season and Organic Breakfast” in San Diego, Santa Barbara, Orange County and Palos Verdes. By teaming up with us, the Boys and Girls Club reached an estimated 2,000,000 people for $0. Yowsa! They then won an national marketing award for this effort.

“Chef Amanda Curry at the Center for a Healthy Lifestyle is silly in the kitchen. Surrounded by pint-sized chefs, she lobs jokes, asks goofy questions and gets giggles out of even the most serious kid. Meanwhile, kids are doing the unthinkable: eating their vegetables.
Amanda is the kind of chef we all wish we could be at home with our kids: relaxed, patient and sensible. She’s also more daring than I’d be, allowing the kids to use knives and open cans, and teaching me a lesson in the process: kids can do more than I think they can.” – The Gonzo Gourmet Read full article HERE
