There’s nothing Rach enjoys more than giving back -- and that’s precisely why she started her nonprofit organization, Yum-o!, about 11 years ago.
“[We started it] when we started our television show, really,” Rach says, “to help children in 3 ways: to cook, feed and fund.”
For years, Yum-o! has been funding scholarships, improving school food for kids and helping to feed hungry children in America.
“When I see food in abundance,” Rach explains, “I think of how much my soul has been fed by what we’ve been able to do with our Yum-o! organization over the years.”
And that gratefulness has sparked a wonderful idea in her!
In partnership with her magazine, Rachael Ray Every Day, Yum-o! is launching a new initiative: a contest called Feed It Forward.
This is a contest for charity founders who want to take their grassroots organization to the next level.
We LOVE that!
The winner will receive $3,000 for his or her cause, a feature in the April 2018 issue of Rachael Ray Every Day and -- get this! -- a mentoring session with Rach herself!
