How are we funded?

The Children’s Food Foundation was started with a generous grant from the Jyoti Lalita Kanoi Foundation, a registered non-profit trust u/s 12A of the Indian Income Tax Act, 1964. This has helped us build this website and engage with a number of researchers and like-minded people, such as yourself, to come together as a community. The grant will also pay for ongoing site operating costs – such as hosting fees, domain renewals and maintenance of the website.

Our editorial team as also all of the other incredible people who have contributed their time to write articles, manage the website, go out and campaign – all do so voluntarily, giving their time and energy in a cause that we truly believe in.

Should our grant not be sufficient to handle costs in the future, or if our members suggest that we run campaigns directly in schools, we may apply for further grants to help us.

Under no circumstances will we accept funding or enter into relationships that create a conflict of interest with the objectives of the Children’s Food Foundation.

Where are we located?

We do not have a fixed address since this incurs additional costs which can strain our limited finances. Instead, our members use their own resources and work in their personal time to help research information for the website and work with our ambassadors in organising campaigns.

Can I trust the articles and opinions expressed on your site?

All articles and information contained on this site are meticulously researched and reviewed by one or more members of the editorial team before it can be seen by our users. Further, we ensure that any information that we provide, credits the right sources and includes references for our users to verify. All news articles directly link to the respective news websites.

That being said, we are all human. If you do notice a factual error, please do write in to us using the Contact us form and we’ll sort it out.

What happens when I sign up?

You’ll be kept up-to-date on important articles that concern you in ensuring that our children eat well. This will largely be in the form of a quarterly newsletter. We promise not to bombard you with emails since we want to make sure that anything we send out is relevant and informative and will benefit our readers.

Are you going to sell my information to marketers?

Any information you provide to us on this site is for the sole use of the Children’s Food Foundation. No information is sold or shared with other parties or marketing agencies. Please read our T&C’s and our Privacy Policy if you’d like to get to the ‘fine print’ 🙂.

Is my information safe?

We work very hard to keep our site updated and secure from unwarranted intrusion. We’ve gone a step further in tying up with
DMCA.com – the world’s leading copyright prevention agency to ensure that all images on our site are copy protected and information is kept safe. We have the ability to use their services to take down information or images should these ever be illegally copied by others.

I am interested in contributing articles on your site. Can I do this?

We welcome your contribution. Please use the form on the Contact Us page to get in touch with a member of our editorial team. If you haven’t done so already, you can also apply to become an ambassador and share your stories as well as interact with other ambassadors on our exclusive ambassadors Facebook page.

What are the benefits of becoming an Ambassador?

Our Ambassadors are exceptional people who want to make a difference in children’s lives. They are worried about rising levels of obesity in our children, the ever growing reliance on packaged food which more often than not contain ingredients that we can’t even pronounce, let alone understand, and the sedentary screen focussed lifestyles that our kids seem to be increasingly accustomed to.

Becoming an ambassador is a step towards making a change, in the lives of our kids and in those around us – in our homes, neighbourhoods, schools and communities. As a children’s food ambassador, you join a group of like-minded people together with whom you can gain more information, organise campaigns, share your stories and really – be the voice of change.
