Nominate Your Favorite Teacher To Win Year Of Free Meals


Many local school teachers truly inspire and touch the lives of our youngsters, but don’t always get their deserved recognition. A contest, kicking off today in California and nationwide, offers residents an opportunity to give back to their beloved instructors with a glowing review and the possibility of treating them to a school-year of free meals, courtesy of Sun Basket.

San Francisco-based Sun Basket, a meal-delivery service, this week launched a Treat Your Teacher campaign that will gift 10 exceptional educators free Sun Basket meals for the 2019-20 school year to thank them for their dedication.

“At Sun Basket, many of us are parents, so we know that teachers are the foundation of our communities,” said Adam Zbar, CEO and co-founder of the company, started in 2014, that sells kits of mail-order, pre-measured organic produce, ingredients and recipes. “Teachers do so much to guide and shape children’s minds, and we are passionate about giving back to them by offering a way to make their lives both easier and healthier.”

The 10 lucky superstar instructors will receive —gratis — from Sun Basket three meals per week for the school year, starting Sept. 23 and ending June 1, with ingredients and recipes for such easy-up menus as spicy chipotle-rubbed steaks with vegetable skewers and “creamy” slaw, salmon with green beans, mint chutney and artichoke-almond salsa, and salt-and-pepper tofu stir-fry with glass noodles. Options include personalized meal plans with vegan, paleo, pescatarian, carb-conscious and other selections.

The prize of three weekly recipes for two-person servings translates to a value of nearly $72 per week, according to Sun Basket.

To nominate a favorite teacher, users can email a short blurb on what makes them exceptional to [email protected] or share on Instagram or Facebook using #treatyourteacher and @sunbasket. In 250 words or less, nominations must include the teacher’s name, grade or subject taught, city, state and school for instructors who teach kindergarten to grade 12, company officials said. 

Winners will be announced Sept. 14 on social media and will be contacted via email, Sun Basket management said.

The winning school staff member will be credited for three meals per week for this year’s school calendar – Sept. 23 though June 1, 2020.

Sun Basket began in San Francisco by Webby-winner Zbar and chef Justine Kelly, former head chef at Slanted Door, a James Beard Award-winning restaurant. The company’s mission is to bring curated meals to people’s homes, serving up breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack selections.
