New Video from Chipotle Sustainable Food- Raising Awareness of Farming, Farm to Fork- Social Good Nutrition Education

Posted on Feb 13, 2012 by Maggie LaBarbera

See the new video from Chipotle that premiered during the Grammy Awards- we really enjoyed the video creatively promoting sustainable farming, farm to fork, and eating healthy food! It has music, Willy Nelson singing a Cold Play song.  You won't want to miss it.

It's a short film entitled, "Back to the Start." Download the song now on iTunes. Label and proceeds benefit The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation. 

We applaud them for creating this video, it is inspiring to see their commitment to sustainable farming, fresh foods and nutrition education. It is very refreshing, and hopeful, to see a company use their creativity to promote healthy choices to children and families, with such a great positive animated food video that can be seen on TV and online!

About the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation:

"A key part of that battle is educating children about what they are eating and where their food comes from. As a recent study showed, children who learn about food in school gardens, the classroom, and the cafeteria show an increased knowledge of nutrition, a preference for leafy greens, a positive attitude about healthy school lunch, and a firm grasp on how food affects the environment."
