News from OMD
This month’s OMD Beet is powered by plants. It’s our best recipe ever. Are you ready? Grab a pen and paper, screenshot whatever you need to, because you won’t want to forget it. Ready? Ok, here it goes.
Suzy Amis Cameron + OMD + Oprah =
Yes, you read that right. Suzy is joining Oprah on SuperSoul Sunday this month (October 13th @ 11AM ET/PT) to talk about OMD and the work we’re doing together to save our wild, living planet. Keep your eyes peeled on our (and Suzy’s) social channels for more on this, including some special behind-the-scenes peeks! Don’t forget, you can watch on-air, or on SuperSoul’s Facebook.
But wait, there’s more.

By the time you read this email, The OMD Plan will be freshly out in paperback. Peep the new cover below.
Have you seen it in a bookstore near you? When you do, be sure to snap a photo and share with #OMD4ThePlanet so we can give you a shout-out!

But this isn’t all we’re focused on this month. In fact, equally important is the work happening on the ground that puts The OMD Plan’s message into action. 

National School Lunch Week kicks off on the 14th, and in the spirit of change, we’ll be lifting up stories of dedicated folks working to green cafeterias. Stay tuned for an announcement later this month for more information on a special webinar coming in November.

With that said, let’s get moving...

Changing the Future of School Lunch
Every school year, 30 million kids in the US eat a school lunch. And what are they eating? Often, it’s just greasy pizzas and sugar-packed milks. But it doesn’t have to be that way. School districts, like Oakland Unified, are leading a charge to bring better, plant-based food to our school cafeterias. With National School Lunch Week ahead (October 14–18), it’s the perfect time to find out how you can be a champion of this change in your community.
