You can check them all out at the “Support our Programs” link above.

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.

Learn about the costs and benefits of joining the MFA.

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.

Sponsoring companies get an unparalleled opportunity to meet these dietitians, and understand best practices for nudging Americans towards healthier instore purchases.

Contact Georgia Orcutt to learn about becoming a sponsor.

License Oldways Content

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!

Donate Food for a Cooking Class

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 (johnisha@oldwayspt.org) for details.
