Kelly is on the circuit bringing attention to hunger in America. With September being "National Hunger Action Month," a month that is important for the free mobile app, foodtweeks, Kelly will be doing Public Service Announcements and celebrity campaigns for many of the food banks across the country that are partnered with foodtweeks. Her new role as a health activist has lead her to a partnership with the mobile app.
From actress and model beloved around the globe to living off the land, Kelly has become mindful of a healthy lifestyle as a rancher and how that influences her life. To partner her new found interest and advocacy as well as to further cultivate her love of philanthropy work, she is supporting foodtweeks who is donating to a nationwide network of food banks. Kelly is making a difference by spreading the word about this easy to use free app, making better choices simpler, and generating donations for food banks.
foodtweeks allows users to remove calories in the kitchen, at the grocery store or in restaurants but not in a way that will change the taste or leave users hungry, and foodtweeks donates the same number of calories to food banks. This app will aid her plan to roll out a popular next generation multimedia, social media, healthy eating platform called Kelly's Kitchen. Her users will be able to keep her advice mobile using the crowdsourced suggestions available on foodtweeks.
"foodtweeks makes it possible for weight-conscious consumers to serve their communities by feeding the hungry while also cutting calories from their favorite foods in an easy, enjoyable way," said Elisa Shannon, foodtweeks Executive Vice President of Partnership Development.
As part of the foodtweeks and Kelly's Kitchen association, a special code has been developed by the designers of the app which can triple the donations in calories to food banks each time a user cuts calories and uses a special code. Kelly will also be active on Facebook and Twitter where anyone can double or triple each donation made to a local food bank through foodtweeks, simply by sharing how many calories are "tweeked" (cut out) from their foods.
Kelly is a "foodie" favorite celebrity and has become an advocate for healthier eating and living, as she has run her 700 acre ranch for more than a decade. Her lifestyle drastically changed as she went from being a movie star for her roles in Weird Science(1985) and Woman in Red(1984) and one of the most sought after models of the 1980's, to a rancher raising her family and growing her own food.
Jay Walker, the inventor of foodtweeks, is also the founder of Priceline, chairman of Patent Properties and curator of TEDMED, the health and medicine edition of the famous TED conference. A noted entrepreneur, Mr. Walker has founded three companies that serve more than 50 million customers. He is best known as the creator of Priceline, which brought a new level of value to the travel industry.
