February 9, 2016—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
B Corps Little Pickle Press and Cabot Creamery Partner to Support KaBOOM!
(San Francisco, CA) Little Pickle Press is proud to announce the Farm2Table book app for iOS iPad. In this interactive—and hilarious—adventure, kids explore how food gets to their tables. Based on the award-winning picture book, The Cow In Patrick O’Shanahan’s Kitchen, Farm2Table engages kids with animations, videos, and a food/origin matching game. Children can have the story read to them (or record in their own voices) as they join Patrick in discovering a cow—and so much more—in the kitchen!
“The answer to ‘where does food come from?’ is not just the grocery store,” says Rana DiOrio, Founder and CEO of Little Pickle Press. “With the picture book, and now this fun and educational book app, parents can engage their children with the more meaningful answers of how food travels from farm to table.”
Little Pickle Press partnered with the farm family owned dairy cooperative and fellow B Corporation, Cabot Creamery, to conceive Farm2Table, which was developed by TapBook Author. In keeping with the B Corp philosophy that doing good is good for business, 15% of the net sales of Farm2Table will be donated to KaBOOM! to support their efforts to bring balanced and active play into the daily lives of all kids, particularly those growing up in poverty in America.
Farmer and food/agriculture writer Diana Prichard said of the app based on her picture book and app development collaboration with illustrator Heather Devlin Knopf, “When I wrote The Cow in Patrick O’Shanahan’s Kitchen, my goal was to start a conversation with kids and their parents about where food comes from. It’s exciting to see the Farm2Table app taking that conversation to the next level and engaging kids in a whole new medium while at the same time helping children in underserved communities.”
The Farm2Table app is available in the iTunes store: apple.co/1VDtHSn
