These programs all oﬀer sponsorship opportunities:
Mediterranean Foods Alliance
The Oldways Mediterranean Foods Alliance helps companies tie their brands to the popular, healthy, aﬀordable Mediterranean Diet lifestyle. As the original creators of the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid, Oldways is a hub for all things related to the Med Diet – so join with us, for greater visibility.
MFA sponsors pay an annual sliding-scale fee to support the work of the MFA. Beneﬁts include the opportunity to be included in our widely-read bi-weekly Fresh Fridays email and an option of using our Mediterranean Diet Pyramid on your packaging and/or in marketing collateral.
Check out examples of our Fresh Fridays newsletter.
African Heritage & Health
Oldways’ African Heritage & Health program motivates people of the African diaspora to take pride in the healthy foods that are their heritage. Our community-based cooking program, A Taste of African Heritage, is at the core of our outreach.
We welcome sponsors – food companies, supermarkets, and foundations – who can help us provide grocery stipends for cooking classes in diﬀerent regions of the USA so that our volunteer instructors can oﬀer more classes.
Whole Grains Council
The Oldways Whole Grains Council educates consumers, health professionals and food companies on the beneﬁts of whole grains. We also administer the popular Whole Grain Stamp packaging symbol.
Companies supporting the WGC by paying an annual, sliding-scale membership fee have access to WGC educational support and services that can help grow their business, and may use the Whole Grain Stamp on all qualifying and approved products.
Oldways Cheese Coalition
The Oldways Cheese Coalition is an international eﬀort of cheesemakers, retailers, and enthusiasts ﬁghting to preserve their right to enjoy traditional artisan cheeses, including raw milk cheese.
Your sponsorship helps us run worldwide events like Raw Milk Cheese Appreciation Day and to advocate for centuries-old cheesemaking traditions.
Supermarket Dietitian Symposium
Each year since 2010, Oldways has organized an exciting and educational event bringing together leading supermarket dietitians and food companies committed to improving public health. Sponsoring companies get an unparalleled opportunity to meet these dietitians, and understand best practices for nudging Americans towards healthier instore purchases.
Oldways’ experienced writers and nutrition communicators know how to translate the science of nutrition into content that anyone can understand. We’d like to see our content disseminated as widely as possible. You’d like to distribute or publish high-quality health materials using our Heritage Pyramids or Whole Grain Stamp. The solution? License and get permission to use our resources. Everyone wins!
We run A Taste of African Heritage classes across the country. If your company produces healthy, nonperishable foods like whole grains or legumes, we invite you to sign on as an in-kind donor. It’s a great way to promote your brand and do a good deed at the same time! Coming soon: we’ll be oﬀering Latin American Heritage cooking and culture classes, with similar donor opportunities. Your donations enable our programming funds to go further. Contact Johnisha Levi (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
