Jake Gyllenhaal: Chez Panisse Foundation Ambassador!

Jake Gyllenhaal has been named an ambassador for the Chez Panisse Foundation‘s Edible Schoolyard program, a movement to teach students about growing and cooking their own food by harvesting fruits and vegetables!

“I am so excited to accept the position of Ambassador for Edible Schoolyards,” Jake, 29, said.

“I have long admired [founder Alice Waters]‘ work and care deeply about helping children better their health, communities and environment….the students get to apply what they learn about cooking and gardening to other subjects, science for example, where they can learn about photosynthesis while planting in the garden and having the invaluable experience of spending time outside.”

“The Chez Panisse Foundation is not only offering an education that students will benefit from for the rest of their lives, but they’re a leading force in the movement to change the future of this country’s youngest generations,” Jake concluded.

    Well finally Jakey has a cause to promote. Nice to see he can finally put his reputation where his mouth is.

  • Elenna

    Nice to see him involved in a worthwhile cause. Hey if the shomance with Taylor doesn’t work out, maybe he can find a new beard in one of the schools he visits. If he’s mastered how to have conversations geared for the mentality of a high schooler like Taylor, he can definitely get the hang of having conversations geared towards a middle schooler. Maybe that would get him more publicity and he can stage more US Weekly photo ops.

    The effort by Jake Gyllenhaal is in vain because the food in the USA are so contaminated ( so full of hormones and genetically altered…that only one mutant with the genetiic load not to be fat will survive in United States of America!
    The genetic loobies had bought all government workrs and the industry of our world. There are no more possibility people fight against them.

    Perhaps Jake Gyllenhaal can help the animais.
    There are good institution like WWF or Green Peace.
